Jekka's top 10 late-summer herbs

Jekka’s Herb Garden has taken on a magical transformation from planting in early spring.

Late summer in a herb garden is a time of abundant growth and flavour and where the aromatic scents of Basil, Thyme, and Oregano mingles in the air. This is the moment when the vibrant flowers of Echinacea and Cornflower invite pollinators, such as bees and butterflies, to feast.

Jekka's latest blog outlines her top 10 herbs in the her garden at this time of year. Read more about Jekka’s Herb Garden in our guide and on the garden in both spring and summer as well as a time-line to see its evolution. Come and visit in our September Open Days.
