EFW1 Elegant floral background with green leaves .I’m really pleased to announce these two upcoming workshops on 31 January. The first is An Edible Flowers Workshop, which I first held in late November, looking at growing attractive and edible flowers, while the second is Flowers for the table – A gardening workshop, which highlights pretty and delicate cottage garden flowers that will grow in our climate.

An Edible Flowers Workshop serves as a guide to growing plants like Nasturtium, Roselle, Sunbird Sunflowers, Shungiku (Garland Chrysanthemum) and Calendula, for use in salads, tea and even as natural remedies.

Other than learning how to grow these flowers, I will cover its nutritional benefits, and also touch upon how they can be used for cooking and suggest some medicinal purposes.

As part of this 1-hour workshop, you will receive some seeds to get you started, a bag of Nong seed raising mix and an attractive self-watering pot.

Reservation is required at S$55 a head. Register here!
