Frequently asked questions
How do I know which flowers are edible?
Only ever purchase and eat flowers that have been specifically grown for this purpose. Use a trusted grower and never eat flowers from a garden centre or florist as these are likely to have been sprayed with an array of chemicals.
Are some flowers poisonous?
Yes! There are many flowers which contain toxins and should never be eaten. These include daffodils, foxgloves, lupins, irises, delphiniums and many more.
How long will my edible flowers last?
Some flowers will last for up to 5 days if kept in their container in the fridge. Others are more delicate, like borage, and will start to deteriorate after 2-3 days.
How do I store my edible flowers?
Can you recommend which flowers I should use?
Yes, of course! Get in touch for advice using edible flowers for savory dishes, sweet dishes, saleds, desserts, cocktails, cakes and more!
What else do I need to know?
If you are new to eating edible flowers, start with small amounts. And if you have severe hay fever or a pollen allergy perhaps avoid altogether.
