Grow herbs this spring with Jekka's

As everyone knows, Jekka loves growing herbs from seeds. It is such an easy and affordable way to not only transform your garden but also to provide you with fresh herbs for salads and cooking all summer long.

For instance the taste of fresh Wild Rocket will make your tongue tingle and you will never need to buy a bag from the supermarket again!! We have over 140+ varieties of herb seeds to tantalise your taste buds or to bring pollinators into your garden.

Jekka's top 5 seeds to sow right now are:

1. Borage (Borago officinalis)
2. Celery leaf (Apium graveolens)
3. Chicory (Cichorium intybus)
4. Coriander (Coriandrum sativum)
5. Red Orach (Atriplex hortensis var. rubra)

There is a wealth of material on our website on how to sow seeds, such as in Jekka's Blogs, as well as Jekka's guide on sustainable gardening that can be seen here

Jekka's herb experiences this spring


Another great idea for Mother's Day is a ticket to one of our herb experiences. What better way to spend time with your mum than exploring Jekka's Herb Garden, enjoying a herb talk, browsing our herb collection or sampling some homemade cake in a beautiful setting.

We have an exciting calendar of events this year in the run up to Jekka's HerbFest. Our first open days of the year are on Friday 31st March and Saturday 1st April where Jekka will be giving herb talks and there will be Herbetum and Herb Garden tours. Tickets on sale now!

Our spring master classes have proved incredibly popular and we only have a couple of spaces left on our How to Grow Herbs Master Class on Friday 5th May.

The highlight of the year is Jekka's HerbFest, which is our big celebration of herbs this summer from the 30th June to the 2nd July, with an incredible line-up of speakers and demonstrations. Tickets on sale now!
