Ahead of a nationwide Bank Holiday gardening spree - weather permitting, of course - Dobbies appeal to the green-fingered with this bumper. Unlike their more exuberant competitors, it's all very tranquil, but it's a neat visual idea - showing us the top-down view of well-managed neighbouring gardens as if filmed by a good-natured surveillance drone.

In this spot for Dobbies, we're told this is the story of the tenth reindeer who brought joy wherever she went until it was time to go home. Um, not really a story, then. A lot of love has gone into the animation and you can't fault the production... you just can't help wishing they'd had a better script to work with - one with the promised 'story' at the very least.

Feel-gooder featuring nice people getting their trees and holly from Dobbies. Cute kids and pretty girls. Nice soundtrack and a warm rush of relief when one realises that the two crinklies aren't going to grab a quick snog under that mistletoe.

Second stylishly filmed in series that significantly upgrades Dobbies's previous advertising is, like its companion film, akin to flicking through an art book. Literally, in the case of this ad, where the painting American Gothic by Grant Wood is hinted at by one of the images.

Various people are shown with plants and flowers they have purchased from Dobbie Garden World in ad that marks significant upgrade in the national chain's advertising. The effect is like flicking through a stylish photo album.
