Anchor Sq Herb Garden
The herb bed in Anchor Square was built and planted for the first Food Connections Festival in Bristol in 2014. Sponsored by Almondsbury Garden Centre, it is a beautiful raised planter filled with perennial herbs including lavenders, rosemary, thymes, marjoram and three sages, pineapple, blackcurrant and traditional. We interplant each year with annual herbs such as parsley and coriander.
When the bed was first installed, during the food Connections Festival, we worked with mainly children to plant the bed whilst chatting with their parents about what we were doing and who Incredible Edible Bristol were. We are shortly going to replant some of the herbs to refresh the bed. but it’s basic make up will remain the same.
