    • Cornflower (Centaurea cyanus). Annual. Height: 90cm. Flowers: June to August. Geeklet: Cornflowers are edible. They have a cucumber-like taste. Flowers can be consumed in the form of salad and tea, or used as garnish.
    • Forget-Me-Not (Myosotis arvensis). Short annual with blue-grey flowers occasionally interspersed with pink flowers. Height: 10-40cm. Flowers: April to October. Geeklet: Forget-me-nots have been used in the past for their astringent properties. The name Myosotis is derivation of the Latin and Greek for mouse and ears.
    • Meadow Cranesbill (Geranium pratense). Perennial. Height: 30-70cm. Flowers: June to September. Geeklet:  The large purple flowers of Meadow cranesbill turn into pointed, bill-like seed pods that give the plant its common name.
    • Self Heal (Prunella vulgaris). Perennial. Height: 10-50cm. Flowers: June to September. Geeklet: The common name Self heal, sometimes written as Self-heal, refers to the plant having been used as a treatment for wounds and bruises until recent times.
    • Wild Clary (Salvia verbenaca). Perennial. Height: 30-90cm. Flowers: June to September. Geeklet: The name ‘Clary’ comes from ‘clear-eye’, because the seeds were soaked in water to produce a jelly (rather like frogspawn) that could soothe and cleanse the eye.
