      Jekka's essential gardeners gift box contains the following 5 individual packets of culinary herb seeds depending on the herb kit you choose:

      Spring Grow At Home Kit:

      • Borage (Borago officinalis): an attractive plant with flowers that both attract bees and can be used in drinks and salads.
      • Chervil (Anthriscus cerefolium): a wonderful culinary herb with light green, feathery, slightly anise flavoured leaves.
      • Chives (Allium schoenoprasum): both the leaves and flowers are edible and have mild onion flavour.
      • Red Orach (Atriplex hortensis var. rubra): the attractive dark red leaves can be eaten in salads raw when young or you can cook mature leaves like spinach. Seeds can be used to make bread. 
      • Sweet Marjoram (Origanum majorana): very aromatic, pale green, soft, oval leaves with an excellent flavour that combines well with meat, tomatoes and pasta. 

      Summer Grow At Home Kit:

      • Basil (Ocimum): A staple in the Mediterranean kitchen. Lovely with pizzas, salads, sauces, and pesto.
      • Dill (Anethum graveolens): Wonderful culinary herb combining well with vegetables, fish or meat. It is said to improve the appetite and digestion as well as being a natural calmative.
      • Lemon Balm (Melissa officinalis): As the name suggest, Lemon Balm has a refreshing, bright and citrus flavour, that is like lemon with a hint of Mint or Lemon grass. An infusion made from the leaves is said to relieve headaches and tension as well as restore the memory.
      • Red Welsh Onion (Allium fistulosum 'Red Welsh’): A perennial member of the Onion family and stronger flavoured than the white type, Red Welsh onion take up very little space and can be used as both a vegetable and a Herb.
      • Wild Rocket (Diplotaxis muralis): The strong, peppery flavour of fresh Wild Rocket is phenomenal compared to shop bought rocket and can be added to salads or sandwiches or makes the most delicious pesto.

      Autumn Grow At Home Kit:

      • Chervil (Anthriscus cerefolium): flat, light-green, lacy leaves with Parsley like flavours with a hint of anise.
      • Coriander (Coriandrum sativum): one of the most used herbs. Both the leaves and ripe seeds are edible and they have two distinct flavours; the seeds are warmly aromatic and the leaves have an earthy pungency.
      • Jekka's Salad Herb Mix: one of Jekka's salad mixes to make a tasty "cut and come again" crop.
      • Salad Burnett (Sanguisorba minor): one of our few soft leaved hardy evergreen perennials making it a wonderful additional to any herb bed.
      • Winter Purslane (Claytonia perfoliata): also known as miner's lettuce, the whole plant is edible it tastes quite like spinach and is full of vitamin C.
