    Buy Borage Flowers

    (100 + borage flowers per box)

    Borage flower are available between the end of March and the middle of October. 

    Borage flowers are one of the most famous and popular of all the edible flowers. The tiny little blue stars are beloved by gardeners because they brings the sounds of summer into the garden by attracting both honey and bumble bees. They are also a firm favourite with chefs as well who love to use them to garnish both sweet and savoury dishes.

    It should be said that borage flowers are very delicate. They will not sit for a long time on a wedding cake in a hot marquee without starting to wilt so care has to be given as to when and where they are used. They are perfect set into jellies or ice cubes where their beauty is preserved. They are lovely popped into champagne cocktails at the last minute or floated on glasses of summer Pimms with a sprig of mint (we can provide that too!).

    If you would like to use them on a Wedding or Christening Cake then they need to be stored in their container in a fridge until the 11th hour and then added at the last moment.

    Borage flowers are lovely scattered through a buffet salad or perfect to garnish the poshest of summer cucumber sandwiches. Fit for royalty or at least Hyacinth Bucket.

    Buy Edible Violas

    60 standard violas to a box – mixed seasonal colours unless requested

    100 fairy violas to a box – mixed creams and purples/yellow unless requested.

    Violas come in pretty much every colour except green. They are one of the better know and loved of the edible flowers and they are the ones most commonly associated with  crystallised flowers.

    Violas are incredibly colourful and can flower all year around but are particularly prolific from early spring until about mid September. Their black or dark blue centres contrast with their bright outer colours and make them a welcome addition to any plate. They have a very subtle fragrance and virtually no flavour at all which means that they can accompany both sweet and savoury dishes with equal ease. They are the flower most often used by chefs for garnishing plates. The stunning cake to the left was photographed by The Daily Mail Weekend Magazine when they wrote an article about us.

    We sell two sizes of violas. Fairy violas which, as the name suggests, are tiny and perfect for garnishing bite size canapés or dropping in a glass of something special – they are slightly smaller than a 5p piece. We also sell standard size violas which slightly smaller than a 10p piece. You can see the difference in size by clicking on the white button below.
