Jekka McVicar seeds launched by Johnsons

Johnsons Seeds has joined forces for the 2016 season with Jekka McVicar to launch a new retail range of herb seeds.

McVicar has selected a new collection of 47 species and varieties of herbs, including both well known 'classics' and some more unusual names.

Presented in large-format packets, featuring McVicar's own varietal photography on the front and her personal sowing, growing and usage advice on the reverse, the collection is displayed on a bespoke, stand-alone unit.

Mr Fothergill's brand Johnsons' Helen Clayton said:  "No one knows more about herbs than Jekka, gardeners recognise and respect her, so we are sure they will make a bee-line for her range."

Jekka McVicar has published several books on herbs, and is a regular contributor to magazines such as Gardeners' WorldThe Garden and Good Food, and national newspapers.  She has also appeared on many television programmes. In 2013 she created Jekka's Herbetum in the grounds of her herb farm near Bristol, displaying the largest collection of culinary herbs in the UK.
