Please note: I am not currently taking any new edible flowers orders for 2019 or 2020
I spent most of my childhood amongst the sunflowers, marigolds and tomatoes of my parents' beautiful, ever-blooming and productive garden, which set in a life-long love of nature, plants and flowers. I later gained my Royal Horticultural Society Principles in Horticulture qualifications and spent a very happy season volunteering in the commercial but family-run environment of Ashdale Nursery in Nottinghamshire. These days I apply everything I'm continually learning and everything I love about horticulture and the natural world to The Flower Deli.
In 2006 I began growing and selling edible flowers commercially to bakers, chefs and mixologists. It was a dream of mine to see my flowers used by culinary artists for occassions of celebration and love. Take a look at my Customer Creations page to see some of the beautiful cakes and dishes.

On these pages you'll see more than edible flowers now. I love everything about plants and the wide range of benefits they can bring from their beauty, nutrition and healing properties. Head over to the blog to see more.
