Edible Flowers - Eat Your Greens As Well As Your Colours!

In my latest film: Edible Flowers (11 mins) I take you for a wander through my award-winning permaculture garden to show you what edible flowers are growing this winter including vegetable flowers, herbs flowers, legume flowers, fruit flowers and native flowers.
