Grows From March indoors to be transplanted outdoors in April.

Box includes: Viola, Cornflower Blue Ball, Calendula Calypso Orange and Nasturtium ‘Tom Thumb’

 

CORNFLOWER Blue Ball

The flowers have no fragrance and have a sweet but spicy clove flavour.

They are easy to grow in containers, window-boxes or borders

CALENDULA Calypso Orange

A ray of sunshine in the garden. One of the longest flowering plants with daisy like flowers. Great as both a cut flower as well as culinary use. Calendula is also an anti-infective and anti-inflammatory.  It helps seal and protect wounds when the petals are made into an infusion.


NASTURTIUM ‘Tom Thumb’

Great for growing on windowsills, containers and pots as they are compact little plants with beautiful flowers. Both the flowers and leaves can be eaten. The leaves have a peppery flavour similar to watercress and are high in vitamin c. The seeds can be used as a substitute for capers if picked when green.

Viola

Cute little flowers which will flower continuously from Summer to Winter. Viola really comes into their own used in ice cubes for drinks, cocktails or as a garnish for cakes and desserts.
