Jekka’s Herb Farm is an award-winning herb nursery that over the next 5 months is going to be transformed into a Herboretum. We are very proud of our collection of specimen herbs that we have accumulated over the last three decades and feel it is time to build a garden to show them off to their best advantage so that others can be inspired to grow them too. Hence transforming the farm into a Herboretum. The word Herboretum has been created, it literally means collection of herbs as, for example, an arboretum is a collection of trees.
This collection will become the foundation from which the school will be formed. The current potting and dispatch shed will be turned into a teaching area, and the potting and propagation area will move into our large glasshouse. This is a lot of work but should be done within the next two years. During the interim period we will not only continue to grow plants for visitors to buy from the farm, like any reputable garden, we will also have our online shop selling seeds, books and herbal teas. We will be choosing three months next year to host ‘Herb days’ on selected Fridays when visitors will be able to visit the farm to buy our herbs and to see the Herboretum as it progresses. Our Herboretum will be a visionary sight with all our species in rows for our customers to see the diversity and outstanding beauty of our herbs.Follow @JekkasHerbFarm
