Van Hage Great Amwell

Van Hage is more than just a garden centre; offering a treasure-trove of exciting and practical ideas for gardeners and home lovers, with a wide range of inspirational brands, expert advice, exciting events and top-quality catering to delight you on every visit.

Great Amwell is the Van Hage Flagship Garden Centre with beautifully landscaped car park, over 1000 sq metres of shopping space and a Miniature Railway. Van Hage offers a quality shopping & leisure experience for the whole family and for all ages. If you have not visited our Garden Centre then we welcome you to Great Amwell to see our values for yourself.

In November 2022, Blue Diamond acquired this garden centre and 2 others known as Van Hage.

The three sites are the flagship store at Great Amwell Ware, Chenies between Amersham and Rickmansworth and the Van Hage centre on the PE1 retail park at Peterborough.

Our Managing Director, Alan Roper said “For me personally, this is a landmark acquisition. Van Hage’s was one of 3 garden centres in the early nineties I would visit as a younger man for inspiration and would feel in awe of what they had achieved and never imagined that one day, we would be the proud owner of such a business."
