Herbs are a feast for the senses and Jekka's Autumn Herb box is the ideal gift or treat for your garden and kitchen.
Jekka has selected a range of herbs that will provide flavour to many dishes and we have included a recipe card that you can try as well as some more recipes online in our herb-based recipe section.
All our herbs are grown in the UK and are in the larger 1 Ltr pot (approx. a 13cm diameter). This means they are more established and are grown to survive the British climate. We have included Jekka's guide to growing herbs to give you some helpful tips on caring for your plants and there are some more details in Jekka's blog on growing on your herbs.
Our herbs are not just for the Autumn, and with the proper care, should provide pleasure for several years.

- Parsley (Petroselinum) is for flavour not just a garnish. It has lovely clean slightly earthy, peppery flavour that brightens the taste of other foods and herbs. We love Jekka's Version of Panna and serve it as a starter or snack on oat cakes.
- Sage (Salvia) flavour is quite difficult to describe, it has hints of pine, eucalyptus and citrus with a hint of earth. It is renowned for aiding the the digestion of fatty foods. It has long been used in stuffings and with sausages due to its preservative qualities. Try our Sage and Fennel Sausage Rolls as a tasty treat.
- Rosemary (Rosmarinus) has a great culinary flavour that is a combination of pine, eucalyptus, mint, wood and citrus. It has many culinary uses including: roast vegetables, meat, especially lamb, casseroles and baked fish. It is also lovely with tomato sauces, vinegars and oils. A firm favourite at Jekka's Master Classes is Jekka's Rosemary Soda Bread.
- Thyme (Thymus) is such a useful herb in the kitchen, the flavour of thyme is gentle, pepper, mint, with slightly bitter notes it a ‘must-have’ in the kitchen and it compliments many dishes from roast chicken to baked fish. Try a Thyme, Taleggio and Red Onion Tart for some lovely comfort food.
