Most Veg wholesale markets have a supplier. Parkway market in Sheffield is good. Suugest phoning first so they can source.
We used them to supply for our wedding and the salad was scrummy!

nastursiums are edible... pretty colours and a bit peppery!

no particular ones, but vaguely norman (we don't worry about it being enormously seasonal, as we try to give a selection of what they'd have had at different times of the year, and explain that to anyone who'll listen :lol: ).

But have been looking for ages for somewhere that can supply the cut flowers without success (apart from lavender - but that's from a lavender farm, so they only do, um, lavender).

Think am gonna have to resort to growing them for next year. Could be interesting, given my very ungreen fingers (I can kill mint!!).

Hello

Don't know how easy it might be to get hold of marigolds? Not sure whether they're Norman or not though

I can recommend wild garlic flower, we have some in a pot (accidentally) flowers are mild garlic flavour.

We grow borage, which is very edible. If I'd known you were after some I'd have gone harvesting!
