Summer is the time for salads, iced drinks and lots of cakes and deserts. All of these can be made even more special with edible Flowers.

A colourful mixed salad looks great, but add blue Borage flowers, orange Calendula petals and a scattering of pink Rose petals, and you have a stunning dish.

Why not colour cordinate, halved red cherry tomatoes, thinly sliced red onion with red Monada flowers and Red rose petals, dress with a balsamic dressing, magic!

Or, Sungold toms, orange sweet peppers with orange Calendula petals garnished with purple Violets or Violas would look amazing.
