Edible Flowers - A Beautiful Salad in your own Garden!

~Flowers are high in vitamins and minerals and all are rich in nectar & pollen.

~Rose hips have a high in vitamin C content, as well as nasturtium & marigolds.

~Dandelion flowers contain vitamins A and C. Add them to your salads!!

Edible flowers should be picked in the morning after the dew has gone. You should pick fully open flowers, and of course, should sample several different varieties of flowers before harvesting.
Never eat flowers that have been in contact with any chemicals and poisons such as pesticides or herbicides. Organic is the way to go!

Much like growing grapes for making wine, flowers of the same variety but grown in different locations will have slightly different tastes, due to varying soil types & environmental conditions.

Flowers might also taste a little different at the end of the growing season too, and can vary from year to year.
The best part you ask!!! Flowers are mostly free of calories!

***....NEVER eat ANYTHING from the garden if you don’t know what it is first!!
