Just £1.49

Description Sowing Delivery

Whiter-than-white, petals fan down to form an umbrella like flower head with a mauve centre - and they're lightly fragrant too. The plant is covered with bloom in mid summer and viewed from a distance they resemble snow.


Culinary note: Both the leaves and flowers of candytuft can be eaten raw and have a taste similar to that of a sweet broccoli. For more details about edible flowers click here.
