Jekka's Herb BoxRegular price £30.00
Herbs are a feast for the senses and Jekka's Evergreen Collection is the ideal gift or treat for your garden and kitchen.
Jekka has selected a range of evergreen herbs that will provide Autumnal structure, fragrance and flavour to your garden and kitchen. These herbs can be used in 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.
Limited availability. Delivery by courier and only for delivery in the UK.
Jekka's Evergreen Collection contains:
Lavender Willow Vale (Lavandula 'Willow Vale' ) that has narrow, short, green grey aromatic leaves with a large flower head topped with purple bracts.
- Oregano (Origanum) which has small white tubular flowers combined with oval, slightly hairy and aromatic leaves.
- Rosemary Beneden Blue (Rosmarinus officinalis var. angustissimus 'Beneden Blue') that has short, fine, dark green, needle-shaped, aromatic leaves and a great culinary flavour.
- Broad Leaved Thyme (Thymus pulegioides) which is a mat-forming Thyme with small, oval, dark green leaves that are easy to remove from the stems.
All herbs at Jekka's are grown for the British climate following organic principals and use a peat-free compost. Our pots are Roadside Recyclable Herb Pots.
- Lavender (Lavandula) has a strong, sometimes overpowering, floral flavour and is extremely good infused in sugar for making cakes, biscuits and puddings. Try Jekka's Lavender Oat Cake Recipe.
- Oregano (Origanum) has wonderful strong tasting, slightly spicy and pungent leaves, Oregano is an important herb in Italian, Greek and Mexican cooking. As the weather turns colder nothing is more soothing than a tasty bowl of Roast Tomato and Oregano Soup.
- 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 in this fragrant teatime cake recipe where we see it’s pine and floral notes shine through to perfectly compliment the orange; try this Rosemary and Orange Olive Oil Cake.
- 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.
