The company said: "Dobbies’ new leaders have exciting plans which will help shape the gardening industry going forwards, including championing British nurseries. Dobbies has arranged the event at Kew to welcome the industry together to share this vision."
Chief executive Nicholas Marshall said Dobbies wants "to show nurseries what we want to do in the centres and online". Dobbies is teaming up with Ocado to provide an enhanced web offer.
Marshall said when he was at Wyevale Garden Centres he got British-based growers’ plant supply up to 80% and "aims to do the same at Dobbies".
More than 80 UK growers have already been invited to the Kew event, on 14 June.
