Gnoming in on Jekka’s Gold at Malvern

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, Borage, Angelica, Chives 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!
