The 80th anniversary of the Normandy Landings.

In 2024 the UK will commemorate the 80th anniversary of the Normandy Landings on 6 June 1944 with a series of major commemorations and events across the UK and in France.

Also known as D-Day, the historic operation saw the Allied Forces mount a large-scale invasion of Nazi-occupied France that ultimately tipped the course of the Second World War in the Allies’ favour.

Now in its second year, the Petersfield Seed Swap has grown into a much-anticipated community event funded by the UK Government through the UK Shared Prosperity Fund.   Whether to grow flowers for a cutting garden, venture into the benefits of home-grown vegetables, enjoy nurturing herbs and sampling salad or a combination of all growing possibilities, the Seed Swap will provide the opportunity to swap a variety of seeds, as well as try something new, for the coming growing year.

Organised by the Growing Together gardening podcast along with Petersfield’s Shine Radio, the event will take place at Winton House on the High Street from 10am-2pm. 

As well as swapping seeds and seedlings, visitors can meet fellow gardeners, gain advice from local gardening organisations and attend gardening workshops too.  Refreshments will be available and there will also be a ‘Seed Sowing Corner’ for younger growers to sow a seed in a pot and take it home with them.

'It's a proven fact that being surrounded by plants and flowers is good for our health. It also improves our outlook no end. Petersfield in Bloom is a brilliant example of just how much our surroundings can be enhanced by growing things and I congratulate the town on its understanding of the value of such a cheerful initiative.'
