We are looking forward to participating in the 100th RHS Chelsea Flower Show, on May 20th - 26th. Visitors will be able to find us at stand SW1 on main avenue, next to the ladies loo! In the run up to this centenary celebration we have launched a competition to win a copy of 'RHS Chelsea Flower show centenary celebration' book, visit our Herb Challenge for more details.
Jekka's Herboretum officially opens in the spring of 2014, however, the farm will be opening for a series of 'Herb Fridays,' the next one is on May 31st, providing an opportunity for visitors to observe the Herboretum in progress and to buy herbs direct from the farm.
The Herboretum will be displaying the largest collection of culinary herbs in the UK. It will not only be a wonderful resource for plant identification and a gastronomic experience for chefs and cooks but it will also form the backbone of a new school at the farm, providing Jekka with an opportunity to share her extensive knowledge of how to grow and how to use herbs. We will be running day courses on propagation, herb maintenance, planning a herb garden and how to use herbs in the kitchen and in the home.
Here are photos of the on-going construction of our Herboretum.
