Dobies in Bloom

Here at Dobies of Devon we have customers who are new to gardening together with those who have many years of skill and experience. We really enjoy receiving letters and emails from all of our customers either asking for advice or giving feedback on our products with many reporting on successes that they’ve experienced at shows during the year.


One such email was recently received from Tom Richardson living down in Cornwall. Tom has been a Dobies customer “for as long as I can remember” and as he is now 82 that’s quite some time! These lovely photos were all taken and supplied by Tom and show that he is not only a highly skilled gardener but also a great photographer.

In the main Tom used Dobies seeds and plug plants to create his beautiful garden display together with our ever-popular Easy Fill Baskets. We know that our seeds and plants are top quality but Tom clearly has very green fingers to be able to bring out the best in them.

We’re not the only ones to think Tom’s display is beautiful. He was awarded a cup for coming first in this year’s Helston in Bloom Garden Competition and also received a second prize for this hanging baskets.

Well done Tom. Many congratulations from all of us here at Dobies and thank you for sharing your photos.
