Edible Flower Garden & Apothecary Bar
16 August 2014
Why waste a beautiful flower by just smelling it? We say: “EAT IT!” For one day only Nunhead is host to the Edible Flower Garden & Apothecary Bar, where you can taste everything from naturally growing chocolate mint leaves to cocktails made from Calendula and Nasturtiums!
Fantasy High Street is delighted to return to Nunhead in 2014 and work in partnership with AG Flowers to organise this very special garden installation. We’ll be running tours of the garden from 2-8pm where performers will guide you in and amongst the plants to pick petals right from the flowers to taste them. You’ll be able to learn everything you need to know about eating edible flowers, from finding out which ones are safe right through to creating your own recipes! We promise you’ll look at flowers in a whole new way - and will experience new flavours to satisfy even the most adventurous culinary appetite!
We have limited spaces for our tours, so book a ticket in advance to avoid disappointment on the day. Prices are £10 / £6 concs and include a free cocktail.
From 1pm-11pm we’ll also have our Apothecary Bar open for business. Come and enjoy a cocktail al fresco in our pop-up garden, and watch as the bartender creates colourful, tasty drinks with herbs and petals grown right out of our planters - drinking mojitos never tasted so fresh! Perfect to enjoy on a mid-summer evening.
