Dobbie Garden Centre

The business was founded in 1865 by James Dobbie, who created a seeds business named Dobbie & Co. After being awarded the Royal Warrant for Gardeners and Nurserymen to the Royal Household, the company expanded into a seed catalogue business, where it built up a customer base of 50,000 over the following century.

Home › Support Us › Fundraise › As a partner › As a company › Our Partners › Dobbies Garden Centres Dobbies Garden Centres Dobbies is one of the UK's largest Garden Centre retailers, and has chosen Teenage Cancer Trust for the second year running as its national Christmas charity partner so each Dobbies store will be holding amazing events to raise funds as we approach Christmas. Previous partners › Over the coming months, Dobbies Garden Centres will be hosting events to raise much needed funds for Teenage Cancer Trust. To kick off fundraising all 35 stores across Scotland, England and Northern Ireland hosted a Christmas Charity Night, which marks the start of the festive season in-store and celebrates the launch of our partnership. Photo by Jon Savage Photography Santa’s arrival This Sunday (20 November) will see a very special visitor in Dobbies stores around the country. There’s a good chance that his reindeers are still getting ready for the big day, so it’s anybody’s guess how he will arrive! Join us in store from 11am when he makes his grand entrance, but make sure you get there early to wave him in. Dobbies’ elves will be collecting donations to help raise money for us as their charity partner. Find out more about Santa’s arrival on Dobbies’ website, and book your place in advance online to meet him in his grotto. Ladies’ Night After a night of live music, entertainment, beauty treatments and more? Head to your nearest Dobbies store on 1 December for the incredibly popular Ladies’ Night! Tickets cost just £1 with the proceeds coming directly to us to help fund our vital work.  Dobbies will be ready to welcome event-goers with a glass of fizz and some delicious canapés to get the night off to a good start. Those attending can look forward to top tips on how to ‘get the look’ from all the top trends this season. There’ll also be pop-up beauty stands and guest boutique retailers, all of whom will be on hand to help customers get ready for the Christmas party season. There’ll also be exclusive discount vouchers and prize draws on the evening. The event takes place between 5pm-9pm and tickets are available to purchase both in advance at Dobbies as well as on arrival on the night. Helen Veitch, Head of Youth Support Co-ordinators at Teenage Cancer Trust said: The Ladies’ Night sounds like such a fun event and hopefully some of our Youth Support Coordinators, Nurses and young people will be coming along on the evening to make the most of all the treats that are in store. Having cancer can change how you look and feel and really affect confidence, and I’m sure the evening will give the young people who attend a real boost. The money raised from the event will help toward our goal of reaching 100% of young people with cancer by 2020, and make such a difference to these teenagers who need our help.

Tesco has offloaded Dobbies Garden Centres to a pair of private equity houses as the supermarket chain continues to sell off its non-grocery businesses. A group of investors led by Midlothian Capital and Hattington Capital, two mid-market buyout firms, paid £217m cash for the 35 garden centres. Tesco said it would spend the cash windfall on everyday business expenses. The deal follows Tesco’s sale of its restaurant group Giraffe and its Turkish business, and is part of a wider plan to ditch non-grocery assets. Investors said the sale of Dobbies had been in the works for two years. Dave Lewis, Tesco’s chief executive, said it was a “difficult decision” to sell Dobbies, but that offloading the retailer was part of the supermarket’s business plan, having bought the chain for £155.6m in 2007. “We do believe this agreement will give Dobbies a bright future, while allowing our UK retail business to focus on its core strengths,” said Mr Lewis, who since his appointment in 2014 has initiated a management shakeup amid promises to take the retailer back to its “core” values.
