May Rankin, Dobbies community champion in Westerwood, said: “We’ve organised The Big Garden Party to help show people how to get the best from their gardens during the summer months and to celebrate how the garden can be transformed into a place to host your own sunniest of shindigs. We’re also excited to be creating a big summer party for all the community to come along and enjoy.”

To coincide with the release of Gnomeo & Juliet on DVD, blu-ray family pack and blue-ray 3D on June 6 from Entertainment One © 2011 Touchstone Pictures, the garden centre retailer will be holding a Gnomeo & Juliet themed picnic for children to enjoy at its Big Garden Party.

For those attending on Sunday, June 19, there will be a Father’s Day garden games championship and every dad who competes will receive a certificate.

There are a variety of offers on the day as well as a free plant and drink for all Dobbies Gardening Club members.
