My bachelors buttons are blossoming! I kind of wish I put them in the ground and not in containers, so that they could really expand. But I'm getting some pretty ones. Anyone else eating their flowers?

What do they taste like? I'm intrigued by this because they look so pretty but I can't imagine the texture. Do the feel soft and tickly?

I used to eat the flowers my nan had on her dining table when I was a kid. Carnations I think. Does that count?

I grew edible flowers last year! Bachelor's Buttons, Calendula, and Nasturtiums. They don't taste like anything, really (well, nasturtiums are kind of peppery), but they are so pretty as a garnish!

Isa, that is the most beautiful salad! I guess I'm too lazy to pick a lot of flowers, but I love sucking the nectar out of nasturtiums while I'm in the garden. I do pick radish and arugula flowers, the occasional daylily, and the red scarlet runner bean flowers are especially yummy.

Borage is my favorite edible flower for the way it looks on a salad. Nasturtiums for the way they look just as a plant, but I wouldn't want to trim the flowers, too pretty just left to flourish with their cute leaves.

Chive flowers are another no one has mentioned yet. I look forward to them every spring! The tiny individual flowers are quite oniony, but not quite as strong as a real onion, so they add a really nice flavor. Never eat the whole flower head though - a friend of mine did once at a party and it was so hot she had tears in her eyes for a while!

Ooo, yes, chive flowers are tasty. I think if you cook them you can eat the whole head though, I put them on pizzas!
