Edible Flower Teacup Garden in the Kitchen

Have you ever grown edible flowers? I think a kitchen garden or windowsill garden is so charming. A few weeks ago I was at a local garden store and saw these sweet little violas. I planted a bunch of them in pots but had a few leftover and decided to put a few in my colorful coffee mugs!

I’ve made mini-gardens like these for years, aren’t they so fun? But I’ve never put edible flowers in my mugs before so this was a first. What a sweet gift for Mother’s Day, a housewarming or just for your kitchen! I have been inspired by this Botanical Baking cookbook to use more edible flowers in our baking and cooking. They are so pretty in a salad, on top of yogurt or cakes.

My husband made a yummy blueberry dessert the other day and used a couple of our flowers as a darling garnish! So sweet! I took a photo for you :).

Having the flowers in the kitchen makes them so convenient to add to a recipe! They will do just fine in the mugs (no drainage needed) for weeks. At some point you’ll probably want to transfer them to a bigger pot or just plant them in a garden as they will eventually get too tall for the mugs. The key with the mugs is to not overwater. When the soil is just about dry add a bit of water. Usually I do that every day as mine are in a sunny spot in my kitchen.

I also got more forget-me-nots this spring, they are another sweet edible flower! Aren’t they THE CUTEST? I was so tickled to see them pop up in our yard last year. I will be planting my new ones into Lily’s Garden this week (see that and some of our other garden areas here).
