SPOOKY activities will be on offer as Halloween arrives at Dobbies' Dunfermline store.

The garden centre has unveiled a magical Little Seedlings Holiday Club workshop with experts on mystical plants and their powers.

Tailored for members between 4 and 10 years old, the interactive session is filled with fun to help children appreciate their natural environment.

Young witches and wizards-in-training will embark on a journey through time to learn how ancient cultures used plants.

For example, the ancient Greeks and Romans believed that Rosemary could enhance memory retention and the ancient Egyptians thought Verbena could ward off evil spells.

They will also explore the secrets of medicinal plants such as Evening Primrose and Dandelion and venture into the realm of the most poisonous plants, like the Deadly Nightshade and White Snakeroot.

Games and activities will spark the imagination of the children and they will get a chance to brew a magical potion, cast a spell of their own, and craft magical plant charms to proudly take home as cherished mementos.

Dobbies’ Community and CSR Communications Executive, Chloë Bell, said: “We are very excited to welcome children to this workshop in our Dunfermline store during the October break.

"Our Little Seedlings Holiday Club gives attendees a chance to make friends and learn something new, and we hope to nurture the next generation of gardening enthusiasts in a playful and informative setting.

“We believe that learning should be fun, and that's why we've incorporated engaging games and activities that will ignite children's imagination.

"From potion-brewing to crafting magical plant charms, this workshop will encourage creativity and a hands-on connection with the natural world."

The event will take place on Wednesday, October 11.
