This was the week when the herb garden was finally brought into use after painstaking work removing weeds for the past five months. Tracey, Tez, Helen, Ellis and Dan were joined by a group from Nottingham Trent University who carried out the bulk of the work on the herb garden. Tasks included removing the remainder of the weeds, the most invasive being horseradish, weaving and lining of the willow raised beds and of course planting of the herbs! The herb plants included sage, rosemary, fennel, Russian mint and curry plant amongst many others.
Weeding to clear the area ready for the herb beds
Tough work - very deep and very large roots!
Then for the lining.
