Sarah Murray, Dobbies’ Partnership and Events Manager said: "Our Little Seedling Club is really popular as we strive to inspire and encourage young people and families in Lisburn to enjoy gardening, no matter the space they have. Sunflowers are fantastic for city, coastal and cottage gardens, ideal for beds, borders and pots, making them great for all.

"We’ll be encouraging our club members to measure their Sunflowers as they grow and keep their fellow Little Seedlings updated each month!”

Advance booking is required to secure a free spot at Dobbies’ March Little Seedlings Club session. For more information on how children can participate visit, events.dobbies.com
