UK: Herb farm contributed to medal-winning Chelsea gardens

Jekka’s, home to the largest collection of culinary herbs in the UK, was at this year's RHS Chelsea Flower Show again, and it was quite a successful one for them. In addition to presenting themselves at their own stand, Jekka's supplied a number of award winning gardens at this year's show: three golds, a silver gilt and a silver medal.
