Jekka McVicar seeds sales success

Johnsons Seeds reports its newly introduced range Jekka's Herbs is rapidly selling in to the garden trade, having achieved 90 per cent of its target in terms of number of collections by the end of August 2015.

Herb expert Jekka McVicar has chosen a range of 47 species and varieties of herbs, including both well known 'classics' and some more unusual names.

She said: "I am very pleased to be working in partnership with Johnsons. It is great to have a really good range of culinary herb seeds available, which will inspire people to grow them in their gardens or containers and then use them in the kitchen to transform a simple meal into a feast. I'm also delighted with the response from the public to this new collection; they love the photographs , which are tempting them to buy more than they planned."
