The 5 BEST Edible Flowers for Fall Gardens

We all love a little more color in our gardens in the fall and what better way to add some color than to add some edible flowers… that’s right, EDIBLE FLOWERS!!!  This is a great time of year to plant a garden that tastes as good as it looks!  CAUTION: Not all flowers are edible and not all flowers are grow to eat so BE CAREFULL… only eat from trusted sources that grow them in the same way they grow vegetables. When in doubt, don’t eat it! And if you do, focus only on the ones listed on our Edible Flower Guide available for Free at
