A Handy List of Edible Flowers

If you have a dog, like Tricia does, you may already have a clue about which flowers in your garden are edible—from watching your canine snack on the blossoms.

A more reliable way of knowing which flowers to eat is to read A Consumer’s Guide to Edible Flowers or Growing Edible Flowers in Your Garden.
