Garlic-flavored tulbaghia, an edible flower that's easy to growVery elegant, tulbaghias have the good taste of growing in pots, in a rich and well-drained soil. The bulbs are planted in spring and delicate purple tubular flowers appear in July for the whole summer. Easy to grow on the balcony, this pretty plant was nicknamed "Wild Garlic" by the Anglo-Saxons because of the garlic flavor of its leaves and flowers. Use: as decoration on a mayonnaise, to decorate a dish of mimosa eggs, on a plate decorated with thin slices of beets, on an omelet or even a pasta dish!

Marigolds, spicyDespite their confusing name, marigolds are easy to grow in the garden or in pots on the balcony or window sill. Exposed to the sun, in a well-drained soil, they offer a bright flowering from spring to autumn. But if their flowers in the shape of orange daisies catch the eye, they also surprise delicate palates with their strange bitter flavor. Use: for decoration of salads and raw vegetables. To contrast with the orange color, think of beetroot, radish, asparagus, black radish or red tomatoes. To play the shades, prefer carrots, orange tomatoes and orange and yellow peppers!

Chive flowers, to taste… onion!An essential aromatic plant in any self-respecting herb garden, chives are traditionally used in cooking for their leaves with a unique flavor. But few gourmets know that its pretty purple flowers are as edible, and just as delicious! Some even canned them with vinegar, but then they lost the color that made them so charming. Use: in a cheese and herb sauce, sprinkled on a cucumber salad, on an omelet, as decoration or in sauce with white meat, on a cheese platter.
