Incredible Edible Marple

Filling the first planter

Incredible Edible Marple has been formed as a sub group of MESS to grow food in Marple.
We started small, with just four beds, and want to grow herbs such as parsley, thyme, oregano and rosemary.

There are also some strawberries in the planter near Marple Swimming Pool (see photo below)

We have also planted some flowers to attract vital
pollinating insects to the beds.

The original planters

We weed the planters once a month on Sundays when Marple is quiet
