Dobbies Edinburgh (Melville) is located in Lasswade just off the A772 Gilmerton Road near the Edinburgh City Bypass. It is the largest garden centre in Scotland.
It’s also the Dobbies Head Office. Based in a rural location, within easy reach of Edinburgh city centre, our flagship centre naturally has more on offer than any other Dobbies. It just got even bigger, with a major redevelopment of a new retail village, if you’re looking for the best garden centre in Scotland, in our view, you’ve found it.
Being our biggest store, there is, naturally, an enormous range of plants, outdoor and indoor furniture, gardening tools and equipment, toys and games, pet care and aquatic items and much more. And there are always gardening experts on hand to offer green-fingered tips, help and advice.
Melville has our biggest restaurant, offering all sorts of dining options from a delicious breakfast to afternoon tea. At Dobbies, we're also proud to work with a variety of different partners to bring our customers as much choice as possible. For a list of our store's partners, click on the tab above.
