Where did the dried edible flower story start?
Back in March 2020 when the country was put into lockdown, we were forced to close our doors. As with the whole of the food and hospitality industry, this lockdown had the potential to be very devastating for Nurtured in Norfolk.
We had gone from dispatching huge quantities of edible flowers, bunched herbs, baby vegetables and micro cress on a daily basis, to dispatching nothing. This meant our warehouses and greenhouses were stocked with product, which had nowhere to go!
After a warehouse clear up, we started to think what could be done in the greenhouses? We didn’t want to lose our crops, but the fresh edible flowers were being wasted.
