Primary school pupils are being invited on educational store tours at the Braehead retail centre of Dobbies as part of a new iniative in support of Tesco's "farm to fork" project for kids.

The UK's largest ­supermarket chain owns Dobbies.

Lorraine McKay, who is based at Braehead, said: "We're really ­excited to welcome primary school children into our garden centre and help them to ­explore the wonders and benefits of growing their own.

"Our garden centre is a fun environment for kids to learn about the growing process and how fruit and vegetables get from plot to plate - and we'll hopefully spark an interest that will last a lifetime.

"We'll be teaching children how easy and fun it is to grow their own fresh produce."
