Sweetly scented, edible flowers
Sweetly scented, violet-blue, edible flowers from February to March and heart- shaped, bright green leaves. Sweet violets are perfect for naturalising in a shady woodland garden or shrub border in moist, well-drained, humus- rich soil. Much loved by Victorian dandies, the exquisitely scented blooms make delightful cut-flower posies, are excellent when chrystallised, add an exotic-looking touch to the salad bowl and can be used to adorn cakes, desserts and iced drinks.
