Jekka's coronavirus statement

Updated July 2020

We are continually monitoring the Coronavirus (COVID-19) situation carefully and are following the advice and guidelines set by Government. We would like to take this opportunity to update our customers on how Jekka’s is responding.

The health and well-being of both our customers and our team members is our biggest priority and we are continually reviewing our Herb Experiences and Plant Collections.

Open days
We are running our Open Days & Charity Open Days with a number of increased precautionary measures and guidelines in place. In order to maintain the social distancing requirements and ensure our visitors, the team and the family are safe we are having limited bookable Jekka's Coupons available. We will run our Open Days with Coupons for the foreseeable future.

For more details please see here.

Farm Collections are also still available any weekday and can also be arranged for Open Days.

Please check for any updates or changes before travelling.

Farm gate herb plant collections
Jekka’s remains open for the collection of plants and for collections we are in a position to leave plants by the gate so we meet all the social distancing criteria. Payment will be taken in advance and no cash payments are being accepted. Please make a plant enquiry and see our looking good list for details.

Jekka's Master Classes
We have been reviewing Jekka’s Master Classes on an on going basis and have taken the difficult decision, which we believe is right, to postpone all Master Classes this year. This includes:

  • Jekka’s Introduction to Botanical Screen printing on the 21st March.
  • Jekka’s Herb Garden Design on the 28th March.
  • Jekka’s Sow It. Grow It. Eat It. on the 18th April.
  • Jekka’s How to Grow Herbs on the 25th April.
  • Friends of Jekka's Tea Blending Master Class on the 7th May.
  • Friends of Jekka's Chocolate Making Master Class on the 28th May.
  • Friends of Jekka's “The Alchemy of Food” Master Class on the 18th June.
  • Friends of Jekka's Photography Master Class, Thursday 20th August.
  • Friends of Jekka's Fermenting Master Class, Thursday 17th September.

We will reschedule the Master Classes once the situation becomes clearer and if you are unable to make that date, we will then offer you a Master Class gift voucher for the full cost of the course.
