‘Jekka knows herbs like no one else – let her help you transform your garden and your cooking!’ – Jamie Oliver

‘If you want to grow the very best herbs, you need this book in your life. In fact, this book is way more than that, it’s packed full of Jekka’s knowledge, advice and observations from a lifetime of dedication to the wonderful world of growing. Herbs are life!’ – Nathan Outlaw

‘No one has done more to both educate and enthuse the nation in the appreciation and use of herbs as part of our gardens and kitchens as Jekka.’ – Monty Don

100 Herbs to Grow includes the most productive herbs – ones that are easy to grow, taste delicious and have medicinal properties.

This is a comprehensive gardening guide, so Jekka details how to grow in the garden, in containers and from seed as well as guiding you through propagation, division, cuttings, harvesting and yearly maintenance. And because she grows over 500 different herbs, she knows which species and varieties are the best of each herb (including ones that she has personally cultivated and bear her name!). In the forty years she has been growing, she has witnessed the change of climate and pests and diseases that affect herbs so she has created an up-to-date and authoritative herb handbook.

Jekka also offers historical knowledge and anecdotes as well as culinary and medicinal uses so you can reap the rewards of your successfully grown herbs.
