We pick to order so please do choose when ordering what colours you'd like.
Buy edible cornflowers for celebration cakes, for cooking, for floating in cocktails and as a stunning ingredient in numerous other delicious recipes. Maddocks Farm Organics grows a whole range of cornflowers in colours from traditional blue through to purple, red, pink, black and white. Their natural beauty makes them one of the most popular edible flowers we grow.We sow successionally so that we have cornflowers available from May through until October.
Whilst cornflowers have almost no flavour, they are both stunning and very robust which makes them a firm favourite with customers as both the flowers, or just the beautiful three dimensional bracts, will happily sit on a cake for several hours without wilting. Cornflowers are also fabulous crystallised transforming into wonderful sweet crunchy spheres - delicious. For information about crystallising edible flowers see here.
