The first event takes place at the Wimblington venue on January 30 and will allow attendees to grow vegetables from seeds and take them home.

A spokesman said: "As well as the family events we run here we now have a great schedule of garden centre events over the next few months.

"Our next event will be our "Grow Your Own Workshop" where participants will learn hands on how to grow potatoes from seed, sow their own salad crops and take home pots of broad beans to nurture at home.

"It's an ideal first step for novice gardeners and those with little space in their gardens.
