Grow Your Own Edible Flowers

by | Oct 26, 2022 | How To | 0 comments

Edible flowers as well as being wonderful to eat are a valuable asset to any organic garden. They act as companion plants and attract beneficial pollinating insects to your crops such as bees; hoverflies and ladybirds.

The scent of edible flowers can confuse pests such as aphids whilst attracting predatory insects such as hoverflies and you can even use them as sacrificial or companion plants to keep pest such as greenfly away from your crops (nasturtiums are ideal for this).

So growing your own edible flowers is a perfect ‘win win’ situation. Your garden looks wonderful, tastes wonderful and you are providing much needs support for Britain’s endangered bees and other insects.

If you are inspired by our pages and want to grow edible flowers then we are going to be running some on line and on site courses in 2023 so please do sign up to our news letter to find out more.
