Grow Your Own Herbs


Event Details


Learn how to grow your own herbs, indoors and outdoors, in small spaces.

Get cuttings which you can use to start your own herb garden, and find out how to make the most of fresh supermarket herb plants. Find out hints and tips from local residents.

This free ‘street session’ is open to all interested in growing their own herb supplies at home. Children are welcome too, but must be accompanied by a responsible adult. If you have your own plant pots, please bring them along, so you can take away free herb samples.

The session is sponsored by Vertical Veg North East, which has been running street events in the Wingrove and Arthur’s Hill areas over the last four years, encouraging people to grow fruit, vegetables, flowers and herbs at the front of their homes and in their back yards.

Get involved in our local ‘green revolution’ and help make our area a more attractive place to live in, provide better habitats for wildlife and be able to eat what you grow!
