Jekka McVicar ‘Queen of Herbs’

The rod of Asclepius, the Greek God of healing/medicine, overlooks Jekka’s inspirational garden.

The garden is quite simply stunning, tranquil yet so inventive.

All the plants including the lavender-lined pebble path used for reflexology provide medicinal powers in a garden exuding spiritual ambience.

The knowledge of all things herbal is all but lost in our modern society and Jekka carries the torch.

It was a joy to visit her Chelsea garden.
