The store at Fritton is inviting applications from primary schools and children's community groups, including Brownies, Cubs, and church groups, to join the scheme.

Marketing manager, Alan Hatcher, said: “Each group will be allocated a plot measuring 2m x 2m and will be invited to visit the garden centre to learn more about how to plant and tend vegetables.

“They will receive a starter pack containing everything the children need to get gardening - seeds, tools and full planting and care instructions, with clear information explaining the health benefits of growing your own fruit and vegetables.”
