They have been using Rose's in cooking for a long time, not only rose but others I've seen in books that back in Tudors used then alot as did in Elizabeth 1st time.

default Thanks ever so

How lovely!! Perhaps there will be more coming in.

I have lilacs and roses (not in the veggie garden) so that's another thing to explore. Never thought of planting violets in with the veggies. I do use the violet blossoms for spring greens salads.

Thanks ever so much.
