Salad Flowers Grow Chocolate
There’s nothing more satisfying than eating food you’ve grown yourself, and with Sow Delicious, you can do it anywhere! Why not add a special flourish to mealtime with a bouquet of edible flowers? This heirloom seed slab, once planted, grows a jumble of flowers, each with their own colour, flavour, and qualities. Calendula’s golden orange petals add a saffron flavour to soups, pasta, or rice dishes, camomile flowers have a light apple taste, and can add colour to a salad or make a relaxing cup of relaxing tea, and the delicate yellow, white, and purple blooms of the viola have a mild wintergreen flavour, and are ideal for salads, cakes, or with cheese! Toss a mixture of petals onto a pizza for a particularly romantic night in.
When planted, each of these flowers also act as an organic fertiliser, repelling garden pests and nourishing the soil. Each slab contains a slab of soil, organic fertiliser, and heirloom, non-GMO seeds. An heirloom seed is an open-pollinated seed, that can be saved to re-grow the next season and pass down to your children. Hence – they’re heirlooms! Heirloom cultivars are on the brink of extinction, so by planting them you’re also playing a major role in saving the environment, too!

Sow Delicious is the expression of one woman’s passion for edible gardening. Created in South Africa by Vanessa Jacobs, Sow Delicious is determined to show everyone – no matter where they live – that they don’t even need a garden in order to grow their own living kitchen.
From playing in the mud as a child to travelling the world for gardening inspiration, Vanessa has made organic growing her vocation. She knows that not everyone has a garden or allotment – so she created seed bars and tutorial videos to show how easy it is to grow handy herbs and quirky vegetables even in the smallest of corners.
