Be CERTAIN those flowers that you have already identified
as edible have been grown without toxic pesticides.
This is important! Never eat flowers from a florist's
shop. When you buy ornamental plants such as calendula,
let them grow for at least a month in your own, pesticide-free
garden before eating their flowers. Many plants are
treated at the nurseries with a growth retardant.
It will dissipate in your own garden.
