Edible Flowers

Post by fabindia »

With summer flowers on their way, I was wondering what flowers I can use to brighten up our salads. I know nasturtium flowers are edible and they are bright enough. In Thailand we use something called a 'butterfly pea' which are a beautiful blue colour.

Any ideas as to what to try/grow?

Just seen that Thompson and Morgan 's web site has a longlist of edible flowers which can be grown. Also a list of flowers that are poisoners. Worth looking at.

The poisonous ones are good to know too.

I've always fancied foraging for wild mushrooms but never felt I could identify the good ones from those that might kill you. )reap(

Will check out the Thompson and Morgan website - thanks.

I had a look at the list of edible flowers, forgot to write them down though.
