Jamaican actress Shantol Jackson shows off green thumb

Jamaican actress Shantol Jackson on Monday (June 15) took to Instagram (IG) to show off her backyard garden.

It turns out that Jackson has what those in gardening would call a green thumb, as she showcased one of the products of her labour – callaloo. 

“The soil came through!! I know ya’ll thought I was joking, Lool,” said Jackson on IG as she showcased the lush greenery of her garden.

“It’s so satisfying reaping your own crops. Grow what you eat,” she added.

Jackson, who began acting in primary school, burst onto the international scene in 2017 in Idris Elba’s Yardie which debuted at the Sundance Film Festival.  

She also snagged a major role in the Jamaican film Sprinter which is currently available on Netflix.
