With Spring starting to poke through the grey clouds and many people getting ready to go back into the garden for another year of growing their own produce the team over at Higgledy Garden have created a great post on how to grow your own edible flowers.
Using flowers in cooking is nothing new but it has been an increasing trend for the past few years. Already on FDL we've met with the flower chef of Girona and brought a number of recipes that use edible flowers.
This guide sets out to offer up some tips on growing a range of edible flowers. Sunflowers, Borage flowers and Cornflowers are all included with some great little tips on what to watch for when trying to grow them at home in the garden.
If you've never tried to grow your own edible then maybe this year is the time. We hope you enjoy this Best of The Blogs.
Here's a great list of recipes that use edible flowers.
