Johnson's Jekka herbs hit 550 retailers

Johnsons Jekka's Herbs sub-range for the 2016 season is being offered by more than 550 retailers with coriander and angelica among its best sellers.

Herb expert Jekka McVicar, who selected the range of 47 seeds to bear her name, created her first show garden at this year's (2016) RHS Chelsea Flower Show, in which venture Johnsons supported her silver gilt medal-winning display. Angelica was the most popular herb seed with Chelsea visitors.

McVicar 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."
