Pippa Greenwood, who is a trained botanist and regular broadcaster, said: “Gardening has never been more popular, with 3 million more gardeners in the UK. Our #KeepBritainGrowing campaign is all about encouraging people to keep it up whether they are a novice or an experienced gardener. Our podcast with Dobbies is packed with top tips and advice which will inspire any gardener to get out to their outdoor space - no matter the time of year or weather.”
