AREAS WE COVER WITH OUR HOME AND GARDEN GUIDES
Edible Garden Flower Plants
Edible flower plants are a beautiful and tasty addition to any garden or kitchen. These plants are not only ornamental but also have culinary and medicinal applications. Some popular edible flower plants include hibiscus, borage, calendula, garden sage, and scarlet runner bean.
Edible landscapes combine ornamental flowers with vegetables, fruits, and edible flowers. Floral ingredients such as peppery nasturtiums or tart calendula add a unique flavor and color to dishes. Consult an edible flower cookbook with recipes to determine how individual edible flowers should be prepared and eaten.
Edible flowers are rich in phytochemicals such as flavonoids, anthocyanins, carotenoids, and phenolics, which are responsible for their health-promoting effects. Incorporating edible flower plants into your diet can be a fun and delicious way to add variety and nutrition to your meals.
Nasturtiums Perennial Edible Flower Plants
The brilliant, edible blossoms of the nasturtium are a highlight of this annual plant, which also has a peppery flavour.
Both the blossoms and the leaves may be eaten and are a beautiful addition to any salad. They have a somewhat peppery taste similar to watercress and become much spicier when grown in warmer, sunnier climates.
Young leaves have a sweeter flavour than their mature counterparts. Pickling the immature seedpods is another option. Even though nasturtiums may survive winters in zones 9-11, they are typically treated as annuals. Read More about growing and caring for a Nastaurtium plant.
