Show Notes

Edible Flowers have a long and cherished history.  In this episode, Seren touches on floriography before discussing how many traditional flowers found in the hedgerow and cottage garden have been prized throughout history for their edible qualities. Some flowers may have been cherished for health-giving properties, whilst others simply because they added a piquant flavour to drinks and dishes. Today, this is a practice we’re re-embracing again and edible flowers are set to be the 'new' food trend of 2021.
