Find out which flowers you can eat. Discover edible flower petals to garnish your plates, or dress up a salade. Have you ever been to a restaurant and had a beautiful flower used as a garnish on the plate? Did you eat it? Were you unsure as to whether you should or not? Many flowers Are indeed flowers you can eat, but some chefs might not be certain as to which ones are, so I suggest you don't eat any flowers used for garnish, unless you know yourself that they are safe to eat. While some are perfectly safe, others can make you very sick!
Know the Source
It might be a good idea to eat only flowers that you grow in your own garden, so that you can be sure they have not been treated with any pesticides.
Never eat flowers from a nursery, florist, or ones picked from the roadside!
