    I bought a package of organic edible flowers today to dress up a potluck dish and have lots of flowers leftover. I found the "edible flower list" from Julia Crab that someone posted but there are a couple flowers in my mix that I'm not sure whether they are safe or unsafe. I have snapdragon, marigold, johnny-jump-ups and cornflower/bachelor's buttons. Johnny-jump-ups appear to be ok, but what about the rest? Any idea?

    Thanks!

    Cornflowers are fine. As for the others I'm not sure. You can google the name of them + toxicity and see what comes up. If it's unsafe for birds, its usually not ok for crabs (there are some that are ok)

    Oh, I can't wait until springtime! Tulips, lilacs, dandelions, roses, apple tree blossoms, crabapple tree blossoms, tilia tree blossoms, and so many others!
