Herbs are a feast for the senses and Jekka's Spring Salad Collection is the ideal gift or as a treat for yourself.

Jekka has selected a range of different salad herbs that will provide some fresh 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 follow organic principals and use a peat-free compost. Our pots are Roadside Recyclable Herb Pots. 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.

Limited availability. Only for delivery in the UK.

Jekka's Spring Salad Collection contains:

  • Broad Leaved Sorrel (Rumex acetosa) is a hardy herbaceous perennial with mid-green, lance-shaped leaves that resembles spinach.

  • Chervil (Anthriscus cerefolium) is a hardy biennial that will spread up to 25cm. It has light green, feathery leaves with tiny white flowers in the 2nd year.

  • Japanese Parsley (Cryptotaenia japonica) is a hardy herbaceous perennial, with small white flowers and mid-green leaves with serrated edges.

  • Wild Rocket (Diplotaxis tenuifolia) is a hardy perennial, often grown as an annual, with small yellow 4-petalled flowers and green, deeply divided, aromatic leaves.


    Along with Jekka’s recipes from Jekka's Cook Book, we have provided some seasonal recipes to try with the herbs in Jekka’s Spring Salad Collection at our online herb-based recipe section:

      • Broad Leaved Sorrel (Rumex acetosa) is one of the staples of our family. The young leaves can be used in salads and older leaves blanched like spinach. Sorrel makes a wonderful soup and the recipe can be found in Jekka's Cookbook.

      • Chervil (Anthriscus cerefolium) has flat, light-green, lacy leaves with Parsley like flavours with a hint of anise. It is one of the traditional Fines Herbes and enhances the flavour of chicken, fish, vegetables and salads.

      • Japanese Parsley (Cryptotaenia japonica) is commonly cultivated as a vegetable in Japan. All parts of the plant are edible from roots to seed. The flavour is similar celery combined with Parsley, Sorrel, and Coriander.

      • Wild Rocket (Diplotaxis tenuifolia) has a strong, peppery flavour that, when home grown, is phenomenal compared to shop bought rocket. It can be added to salads or sandwiches or used to make the most delicious pesto.

        At Jekka’s we provide established and hardy herb plants that are grown following organic principals and to survive the UK climate. Please read Jekka's blog that contains her top steps to growing on your herbs.

        There is also ‘Jekka’s Seasonal Tips’ series that covers growing and maintaining herbs in early spring, late spring, summer and autumn & winter. Together they form Jekka’s guide on how to grow herbs.

        Our herbs can be grown either in containers or planted in the garden. Although some herbs will be quite happy indoors, most prefer being outside. Please see our indoor growing blog for more information.
