Did you know?

Don't be fooled by Alyssum's sweet  & delicate nature they are one of the most carefree no fuss flowers around and can withstand dry conditions thriving and naturalising easily in tough conditions.

Alyssum flowers are edible! Contrary to their honey-like scent they have a peppery flavour similar to rocket and a better fit added to omelettes than a sweet dessert.

Tips for growing: Alyssums will flower anywhere all through the year. Trim back after the first flush of flowers to promote more blooms

Bee & Butterfly Friendly - alyssums attract: bees, butterflies and insects to the garden with their dainty open florets and soft honey like fragrance.
