Ethical & Sustainable Unique Gift Edible Flowers Grow Bar
This Ethical & Sustainable Unique Gift of Edible Flowers Grow Bar is perfect for gifting to your best friend, sister or mum this Christmas.
These petals will beautify and infuse flavour to syrups, cakes, cocktails, tarts, desserts, salads, vinaigrette, soups and breads, and may be crystallised or dried.
Start by unwrapping your Growbar and place it with the brown protective paper facing upwards, into a container with plenty of space to allow it to expand. Gently pour half a litre of water into the tray and position indoors on a warm, bright sunny windowsill. The seeds will need to be a cosy 18°-22° to germinate. Water regularly and ensure the Growbar is perfectly moist, it should remain the colour of a rich dark ginger cake.
How to identify your seedlings:
Marigold seedlings have pale-green, long leaves. Marigolds thrive in full sun or partial shade, deadheads should be removed to prolong flowering.
Viola seedlings have small heart-shaped leaves. Viola also enjoy full sun or partial shade, and should be cut back after flowering.
Borage seedlings have oval shaped, slightly bristly leaves and a cucumber fragrance. Borage like full sun or partial shade, and can be left to self seed after flowering.
