Jekka’s Herbetum, the first in the UK, was created in the grounds of Jekka’s Herb Farm in 2013, displaying the largest collection of culinary herbs in the UK.

The new Jekka's Herbs collection from Johnsons is made up of 47 varieties including well-known classic herbs as well as some more unusual varieties.

With large style packets, including beautiful photography from Jekka and advice on what each herb is best used for in cooking.
