Edible bouquets: you can grow that!

Growing edible cut flowers is as easy as growing the flowers themselves, as long as you do so without using chemicals on the plants.

It's fun to be able to go outside and cut flowers, some for your vase and some for your plate, plus it saves you the money of going out and buying them.

What edible flowers are you growing? How do you use them around your home? Do you have any photos to share?


You Can Grow That! is a campaign created by garden writer and master gardener C. L. Fornari. On the fourth of each month participating garden bloggers write about something you can grow. Stop by the You Can Grow That! Facebook page to read all of the posts.


  1. Some of my favorites are calendula, nasturtium and borage. Edible and colorful!

  2. The funny thing about edible flowers is how good they are about attracting bees and birds--also a real plus for growing them. I absolutely love edible landscaping--it just makes so much sense. Your photos are amazing.
