Herbs in High Chelmer!

Edible Essex has started its ‘Public Planting’ sheme by planting a variety of herbs in the seating containers at High Chelmer Shopping Centre in Chelmsford.

Nine types of herbs can now be found below ten olive trees at the shopping centre, including, thyme, sage, parsley, lavender, chives, marjoram, rosemary, oregano and curry plant.

The idea behind the planting is to enable the public to have a look, smell, touch and, once established, to pick a few leaves for their own use.  We hope to demonstrate that it’s relatively easy to grow herbs and hopefully that will encourage people to grow and use them at home. Each variety is accompanied by information about the herb and how to use it.
