RHS Edible Britain launching in Acocks Green – Saturday 13th April

Many local people have already been involved by planting fruit trees including apple, plum and damson and a ‘jam hedge’ but volunteers shall be adding to this by sowing seeds provided by the RHS to produce an array of herbs including thyme, chives and rosemary which everyone can pick and eat in future.
