World Radio Gardening presenter, Ken Crowther, talks about the growing demand for herbs with Jekka McVicar.
Straw bale gardening is something John Mason from ACS in Australia has come across a number of times in his years in horticulture. The technique involves making a straw bale very wet; dig a small hole in the top and fill with soil and then plant your plants. John believes it’s a great way of growing vegetables and herbs.
Organic gardener and author Jekka McVicar is well known for her cultivation and use of herbs. Working with Johnsons seeds she created a range of herbs with her name on. The range includes familiar names as well some less well known varieties as Ian Cross explained to Ken Crowther.
