Sharing advice on everything from festive decorations and at-home Christmas crafts, to how to choose and care for a real Christmas tree, the Dobbies podcast series is full of top tips for the festive season.
Research commissioned by Dobbies and undertaken by Censuswide highlights that 49% of 25 to 34-year-olds agree they will be going all out when it comes to making their home extra festive this year and nearly a fifth (18%) said they would be decorating their home earlier. Almost a quarter (24%) of respondents across the age categories plan on putting their Christmas tree up earlier in the year than they have done previously, with Dobbies’ podcasts providing the tips and inspiration for a range of festive looks.
The first episode in the Christmas series is all about decorating the home. Host Louise Midgely is joined by Dobbies Christmas Buyer, Lynsey Abbott, to chat about Christmas décor and styling the home for the holidays. In the episode, Lynsey talks through the inspiration behind some of Dobbies’ own festive themes and shares her top tips on how to make your home sparkle this year.
Graeme Jenkins, CEO at Dobbies, said: “Christmas is a magical time at Dobbies, with our stores across the UK transformed - Dobbies is not your average garden centre. Our Christmas podcasts are an excellent way to share practical advice and inspiration for the festive season, and we hope that people enjoy hearing from our experts.”
As well as seasonal decorating, listeners can hear more from Dobbies’ experts in the upcoming episodes, with Christmas craft inspiration from Stylist, Rebecca Stanton, and practical advice for caring for real Christmas trees with Horticultural Director, Marcus Eyles, coming soon.
The Dobbies podcast launched earlier this year, giving listeners trusted advice, tried and tested techniques and handy tips to bring out the best in their garden. Previous episodes have covered grow your own, advice for gardening with children and how to prep the garden for the colder, winter months.
