All Jekka’s hard, herb work paid off at the Malvern Spring Gardening Show last week.
“I’m over the moon to be awarded a Gold Medal” says Jekka ” because this shows everyone that organic herbs can look amazing, never mind their countless other benefits!”

Jekka’s little mascot ( infamous for his appearance at the RHS Chelsea Flower Show 2009
) managed to get in on the act too:
Borage the Gnome, taking the credit
Jekka’s ‘Eat Native’ talk on edible herbs in the ‘Garden in Harmony’ theatre was very well received: even an audience full of experienced gardeners are often delighted to find they can actually eat what they might previously have believed to be just ornamental flowers ( Pot Marigold
to name but a few).
While all this was going on, said mascot disappeared for a while, turning up in the most unexpected places:
- Borage at the Dibleys Nurseries stand at Malvern
- ..and Borage again, on the Fernatix stand at Malvern
Who knows what he’ll get up to at the RHS Chelsea Flower Show next week!
