Jekka's Ideas for Mother's Day

One of the best presents you can give your mother for Mother's Day are herbs, they are not only a gift that goes on giving, they look good, taste good and do you good.  What more can you ask from a plant.  Herbs also have a strong relationship with Mother's Day as many are symbols of love and remembrance, see our blog on the 'Myth & Magic of Herbs for Mother's Day' to find out more.

With Spring just around the corner, you just need to walk around the garden to be totally inspired by the herbs that are emerging through the waterlogged soil, Chives, French Tarragon, Fennel, and Mint to name a few.  We never cease to be astonished at the endurance of these amazing plants.

Jekka's Adult & Child Master Class

New for 2020, we are launching Jekka's Sow it. Grow it. Eat it. a Master Class for Adult and Child on the 18th April. During this Master Class we will not only show how to sow seedlings but also how make herb based treats, your endeavours can then be taken home.

We hope this will inspire you to start a herb patch, which can then be used in the kitchen.  We believe there is nothing quite like seeing your seedlings unfurl and grow into something useful and edible. Check out our video through the link below.
