    all done, i wouldnt just eat flowers out the garden though, probably eat the wrong one and throw up, I used to buy salad bags from my local deli that had flowers in! Very interesting!

  4. Hi All,
    I've taken the survey as well. I have a recipe for fried courgette flowers so fancy doing this when I grow courgettes this Summer.
    Kind regards

    Ooo yes, we have used the courgette flowers-stuffed them with a cream cheese mix and then some tempura batter, yummy!!! xx

    Nasturtsium flowers leaves and the green seeds are nice in salad and violets give a lovely taste to cakes . Never tasted daffodil .!Mama

  11. Hi everyone
    Be careful!! I am sure daffodils are poisonous.....

    We use borage and chive flowers quite a lot in salads & drinks

  13. Hi Mama

    It is rather tricky to find these things out, isn't it! They may be OK but I have just had a look on google & several say they are poisonous - but they may be wrong.....better to be safe than sorry. However, Nasturtium are listed as edible flowers - the buds are pickled like capers!

    Regards TopVeg
