    Buy Primrose Flowers.

    (70 + wild primrose flowers per box)

    Primrose flowers are the first herald of Spring and their delicate colour and perfume are as lovely on the plate as they are on an April country walk.

    Primroses have a subtle yet distinctive perfume which is discernible in baking. Slightly sweet and definitely floral. Primroses are perfect therefore for making floral syrups and curds and along with their cousins the primulas they are also wonderful crystallised. Alternatively floating in a cocktail or dressing a salad, they are lovely for a Spring Wedding or celebration.

    Maddocks Farm Organics has a wild foraging licence with the Soil Association which means that we are licenced to sustainable forage for wild primroses on our land. All our primroses are organic. We pick early in the day and send out by overnight courier so that they arrive with you pretty much within 24 hours of being nestled on a Devonshire bank.

    As well as primroses we also sell their more colourful cousins the primulas. If you’d like a colourful mix of primroses and primulas then please do specify below when you order.

    Primroses are in stock from March to early May.

    Buy Edible Tulips

    Buy Tulip Flowers. 5 flower heads per box. Organic edible tulips for culinary use.

    Tulip petals can either be gently snapped from the base of the flower – careful as they can be brittle. The individual petals can then be used as for mini hors d’oeuvres or as stunning ‘containers’ for sauces or dips.

    The whole flowers can also be used by removing the stamens and ‘inner’ parts of the flowers and trimming the stem level with the base of the flower. These can be stuffed & served cooked or raw (the link for a great recipe from the fabulous chef Pascal Aussignac is here). Here at Maddocks Farm we like to use them as ‘bowls’ for serving ice-cream or the fabulous Tulip Bloody Mary Prawn Cocktail. Other tulip recipes are on our blog.

    Tulip colours change throughout the season and your box will include the very best on the day that we pick.   If you’d just prefer just one colour then please specify when ordering and we will try to pick to your preferred option. Please be aware that in very rare cases some people have shown to be allergic to tulips. More information about tulips is here.

    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.  They come in purple/yellow/white bicoloured.

    We also sell standard size violas which slightly smaller than a 10p piece. They come in a range of colours. You can see the difference in size by clicking on the white button below.
