Edible Flowers
Edible Flowers

Edible flowers are great for borders, edging, and adding a splash of colour to the garden. We like to use them in our edible landscapes, raised beds, and of course in the kitchen as well.  We’ve listed our favourites we like to grow in our gardens that are available for your garden too.

Edible Flowers

Nasturtium

Both the leaves and flowers are edible and have a distinct peppery flavour. The seed pods can be pickled and used in place of capers

Viola

Available in a wide range of colours, these small heart-shaped leaves make for a beautiful bedding flower as well as edible flower for your salad

Echinacea (Coneflower)

A drought-tolerant flower commonly used for medicinal purposes, echinacea has large showy flowers that bloom from early to late summer. We like it for its beautiful flowers

Borage

Grown for its true blue flowers, borage is said to have a sweet cucumber honey taste and makes for an attractive garnish. Leaves can also be eaten fresh or cooked

Calendula

Calendula has a striking orange colour flower that has been used for centuries in treating a range of skin conditions, a replacement for saffron, and in salads

Mammoth Russian Sunflower

Growing 6-8 feet tall, this variety produces huge flower heads and lots of seeds to eat or leave for the birds during winter
