Buy Snapdragon Flowers
Buy Snapdragon Flowers. 40 to a box. Mixed colours unless requested.
Snapdragons are like marmite in the edible flower world. You either love them or hate them. I am definitely in the ‘love’ camp for a variety of reasons.
Firstly their ability to snap and hold themselves onto cocktail glasses makes them a big hit with the cocktail set. You can buy snapdragon flowers to decorate cocktail glasses at weddings or for hen nights… or should that be the other way around!
Secondly, snapdragons come in a range of bright colours, as both single and doubles, and flower all summer long. They are beloved by the bumble bees which stand on the front of the flowers and snap them open before disappearing completely inside to find the pollen. I frequently pick them to suddenly find the flowers buzz!
Snapdragons have quite a bitter flavour reminiscent of chicory which makes them lovely in salads and on the canapés. Using a piping bag they can be stuffed with cream cheese or guacamole for really pretty hors d’oeuvres.
Lastly they are very robust which makes them a good choice for garnishing buffets or cakes which are going to be ‘standing’ around in warm surroundings such as marquees. They will hold without wilting for several hours.
Snapdragon flowers are beloved clipped onto cocktail glasses but their slight chicory flavour means that they are lovely with savoury dishes such as salads.
Try a stilton and pear salad with walnuts, snapdragons and a honey dressing. Lovely!
