Sugar and Charm's Edible Flower Chart
Edible Flower Chart ! Using fresh flowers is one of the easiest ways to decorate a dessert or garnish a cocktail ! So these are the safe pretty edible embellishments perfect for any party you have this Spring or Summer !
I walk in my gardens on a July evening, admiring the lush green that abounds in midsummer. The bee balm is chest high and near blooming, the lavender, catnip, and oregano are in full flower; the sage, rosemary, thyme, and basil are growing tender new leaves almost daily; and the peppermint and lemon balm are spreading prodigiously.
Plant these in the garden to repel mosquitoes - won't get rid of them completely, but every little bit helps! All these plants really need to have some direct sunlight on them during the day to get them to grow, even in Houston's tropical climate. ~ Houston Foodlovers
