Answer: A startling array of flowers can be eaten. There are a number of books about edible flowers, but one of the best known is "The Edible Flower Garden" by Rosalind Creasy. Here are a two web sites you might enjoy:
Burpee offers seeds for many of the edible flowers and some specialty seed catalogs such as Shepherds Seeds (www.shepherdseeds.com) and Cooks Garden (www.cooksgarden.com) offer collections of edible flowers, sometimes complete with flavor descriptions and recipes.
Before eating any flower, be sure you have positively identified it, and that it has not been
treated with pesticides.
