Dobbies hosts bee-rilliant virtual event with Neal’s Yard Remedies to celebrate World Bee Day with Glasgow customers

Tipper Lewis

Dobbies, the UK’s leading garden centre retailer, is marking World Bee Day (20 May) for Glasgow customers with  a virtual event hosted by natural and organic health and beauty company, Neal’s Yard Remedies. 

Following on from the recent launch of their #sustainabledobbies campaign, the experts at Dobbies Garden  Centres are teaming up with Neal’s Yard Remedies in this virtual event, to share top tips on making Glasgow  gardens a bee-friendly haven. Bees are one of the most vital elements of our eco-system, but with several species  now in decline, it’s more important than ever that we all play our part to support these precious pollinators, and  World Bee Day serves as a timely reminder to celebrate their significance in our daily lives.  

The virtual event will start at 7pm on 20 May, and will be hosted by Tipper Lewis, Brand Ambassador for Neal’s  Yard Remedies. Tipper will provide attendees with top tips on the best blooms for bees, and share advice on how  to maximise a garden’s ‘pollen power’, so that everyone can play their part in creating a sanctuary for bees in  their gardens this summer. 

Tipper will also introduce guests to Neal’s Yard Remedies’ Bee Lovely product range, which is lovingly crafted with  ingredients such as honey and beeswax. Every purchase from the Bee Lovely collection helps to support bees across the world, with a percentage of each purchase donated to bee-friendly charities. Lucky attendees will also  be given the chance to experience the range for themselves too, with the opportunity to win one of five Bee  Lovely ‘Head to Toe’ gift sets during the event.

Alongside this, Tipper will be on hand to answer any questions viewers may have, including advice on the best  blooms and bushes to plant to attract bees, and how to ensure that gardening techniques are sustainable and  bee-friendly at every turn. 

Tipper Lewis, Brand Ambassador for Neal’s Yard Remedies, said: “Bees are hugely vital to so many things in our  daily lives, from the food we eat to the flowers in our gardens and even the skincare we use. The team at Neal’s  Yard Remedies and I are very excited to share our knowledge, passion and love for bees of all kinds with Dobbies’ Glasgow customers, and we hope they’ll enjoy learning more about them as we celebrate World Bee Day.”
