Did you know that according to one major gardening retailer, sales of edible flowers are up nearly 25 percent year on year and expected to continue to rise?
Apparently, a lot of it can be accredited to celebrity chefs such as Heston Blumenthal who champion the use of edible flowers in their recipes. Here at The Recycle Works we think that there’s nothing better than tucking in to a delicious meal that you’ve grown yourself and also, we’re talking then about ‘food steps’ rather than ‘food miles’ surely.
Sales of edible plants are also on the increase with more of us buying plants such as mint, chillies, tomatoes and strawberries than ever before! So here’s to more of it as Britain as a nation gets more interested in GYO and growing your own becomes a the norm rather than the exception!
Love Your Environment!
