The colour of your products may vary slightly from those images.  Although we have made every effort to be as accurate as possible, sizes, weights, dimensions and measurements indicated on our site have a 5% tolerance.

Alcohol
We operate a ‘Challenge 25’ policy. Age verification is required by UK law for the sale of alcoholic drinks.  We use age verification softwares to check that we are not selling to those under 18 years of age; by ordering you are agreeing to our on-line checking of information that is already in the public domain.  If we are unable to verify your age in this way we will contact you directly to ask for proof of age (such as a copy of your passport or driving licence).

Herbal Infusions
No medical or health benefits are suggested by drinking our Herbal Infusions. Special care should be taken when giving to children, in pregnancy or when suffering from an ongoing disease and we recommend that you seek the advice of a qualified health professional before consuming.

Please read the ingredients list prior to consumption. Some of our teas contain Liquorice, people suffering from hypertension should avoid excessive consumption. 

Plants
If you receive a plant that you believe is in bad condition, please contact us immediately, but no later than 14 days after its arrival. Please note, that plants look different depending on what time of year it is. For example, deciduous shrubs are likely to have no leaves in Winter and many perennial plants will not even show above the soil level in a pot during the winter. Please see the Jekkapedia page for the plant or our Frequently Asked Questions. However, if you are concerned, contact us (sales@jekkas.com) with a photograph of the plant within 14 days of delivery and we will be happy to pass the photographs to our plant experts to assess whether there is a problem.

If any seeds that we supply prove to be defective (in regard to purity or germination) we will at our discretion replace the seeds free of charge or refund the payment made to us in respect of the defective seeds.  We will not consider this unless clear proof can be given that the seed grown and alleged to have performed unsatisfactorily was seed supplied by Jekka’s Herb Farm and that they have been stored correctly, sown in suitably prepared ground at the recommended time, treated carefully and correctly and subjected to such conditions as likely to produce a favourable crop.  All the seeds sold are trialled here at the nursery.
