  • Beautiful health guide
    27 Oct, 2015, By Adele I am a HUGE Margaret Roberts fan and this has to be my favorite book of hers... A very useful guide to growing edible flowers organically and once youve discovered the joy of surrounding yourself with blooms that are not just pretty but also useful, theres no going back. I used to hate making salads, but adding edible flowers makes my creative juices flow and I now love getting the job of making the salad... This book also has fantastic recipes!
