Sow these individually or mix together in a jam jar, shake up and scatter to get a colourful wild effect. All these flowers and plants should self-seed if left uncut. Jekka's follow sustainable, organic and environmentally sensitive practices and all of their herb plants are grown for the British garden. The herb seeds are untreated and can be used to grow organic herb plants.
Gardens, especially productive culinary gardens, can help combat climate change in so many ways. For example, by helping to reduce our emissions and store more carbon, by providing safe havens for our wildlife and by contributing to a more comfortable and safer local environment. With more and more of us living in cities, the importance of access to green spaces and gardens can only grow and become increasingly vital for our health and well–being
For the past 35 years, all the herb plants grown at Jekka’s have been raised following sustainable, environmentally friendly and organic approaches resulting in remarkable biodiversity at the herb farm.
Organic certification - Jekka's is an organic nursery and, as Jekka's Herb Farm, they held the Soil association Organic Certificate from 1994 to 2011. For various reasons they no longer apply for certification but still follow the same principles whether it is looking after the soil, promoting diversity, supporting and working with the natural ecosystem and protecting the health and well-being of the environment. They have been following these principles since the start of the herb farm in 1982.
Bees, insects and other pollinators - A major part of our natural ecosystem is the biodiversity of pollinators. Pollinators are any creature that moves pollen from the male anther of a flower to the female stigma of a flower and helps to bring about fertilisation of herbs. Insect pollinators include bees (honey bees, solitary species, bumblebees), pollen wasps, ants, flies, hoverflies, mosquitoes, butterflies and moths.
