salads and the fillings for the baked potatoes was excellent.

Dobbies at Edinburgh is a large modern garden centre which lacks the personal touch
purely because of its size. But it does offer a huge range of healthy plants with an
industry standard five year guarantee.
Everything for the gardener is here plus more. The aquatics and pet centre
is interesting and Butterfly World will give the kids something to see and do. The cafe is
good value for money and serves quality food in pleasant surroundings. There are lots of
non-gardening shopping areas on site to make this a day out.
Overall, well worth a visit.
