Edible Flowers Primer

The fascination of edible blooms is one that engages people with the practice of growing in a new way. After all, everyone is an EATER, while not everyone knows how to plant a seed, tend to it as it grows and then harvest it for human consumption.

As more chefs and hosts incorporate edible flowers into their recipes, the notion that there is a nutritional purpose to many annual, perennial and herbal blooms is catching on.

Johnny’s Seeds, a Slow Flowers partner, has published a great guide to familiar and unfamiliar edible flowers you can grow. Download the resource guide here: Edible Flower Brochure (PDF).
