Free seeds for Peterborough to celebrate Garden Park's Royal Opening

Van Hage garden centre is giving every household in Peterborough the chance to claim a free packet of seeds to celebrate the opening of Peterborough Garden Park by HRH The Countess of Wessex.

A complimentary packet of ‘Fruits of Summer’ sweet pea seeds can be claimed by taking the voucher in July’s Your Peterborough magazine to Van Hage at Peterborough Garden Park.

HRH The Countess of Wessex officially opens the Garden Park today.

Peterborough Garden Park chairman Gordon Edington said: "We would like as many people as possible to come and share in this experience and welcome HRH The Countess of Wessex to Peterborough.

"We wanted to be able to do something special for everyone in the city which reinforced Peterborough Garden Park’s reputation as the premier garden centre and retail experience and was also in keeping with Peterborough’s Environment Capital aspirations – which is where the idea of seeds for all came from."

Van Hage chairman and MD Chris Roberts said: "This is all part of our events programme for the rest of the year which will include an ice rink at Christmas."
