  • the sage flower is a must add … I am having a flower renaissance in my cooking at the moment and I am so excited my nasturtiums and heartsease are sprouting to add to my menu …
    I love rocket also and I love their papery delicate flowers too

    • yes these are sage flowers. I made a potato salad today with nasturtium flowers in it … love my flowers. Another tasty flower is artichoke .. I missed a few buds and 2 went to flower and they are delicious! The almost cornflower blue petals are like vibrant tasty threads … great with eggs, in salads and dressings
