A Little Bird Event: Edible Flowers Talk & Workshop at Petersham Nurseries

We have long been addicted to Petersham Nurseries, not only because it provides the most idyllic escape from the city, a bucolic jolt that is utterly transformative, but also because it’s impossible to leave the nurseries without being inspired, invigorated and uplifted. So we are extremely excited to announce our first A Little Bird event there this June. The morning will cover how to grow edible flowers from seed, tips on incorporating them into borders and boxes, as well as how to harvest them with horticulturist Thomas Broom. The workshop will then focus on how to use your crop – Lucy Boyd, Petersham’s Head Gardener (who also happens to be one of our favorite food writers) will demonstrate how to use the flowers in summer recipes. There will be a chance to buy seeds and plants used in the workshop at the event too – and of course plenty of time to browse the nurseries and shop afterwards at what has to be one of the prettiest times of year. To reserve your place email info@petershamnurseries.com – and if our past workshops sell-out success is anything to go by, early booking is very much recommended.
