UK Native Herbs
It is joyous to be able to walk along the lane or around our herb farm and find so many herbs that one can pick and eat just as our forefathers did. These include Primroses, Ground Ivy, Cowslips, Nettles and Wild Garlic. Please read Jekka's Guide to UK Native Herbs for more information about UK native herbs found on your doorstep and see below the herbs in Jekkapedia; many of which can be seen in Jekka's Herbetum.

Jekka's Herbs

We have been lovingly trialling, growing and propagating herb plants on the herb farm at Jekka’s for over 30 years. We follow sustainable, organic and environmentally sensitive practices and all of our herbs are grown for the British garden. You can read more about our Sustainability Approach in one of Jekka's Blogs or in Jekka's Guide to Growing Herbs in a Changing Climate.
