Hi, I'm new--my first time posting here! I've been reading and you guys sound fun and knowledgeable. Here's my question. I want to plant some things that will produce edible flowers. I'd like them to be small so I can include them is salads and as garnishes for the plate/serving tray. I have an idea to make edible flower vases made of hollowed out cucumbers (actually, I got it from Better Homes & Gardens) and besides baby lettuce and such, I want to actually put flowers in it. I know dandelions and nastregems (I know that's spelled wrong) are edible, but what else can I plant. By the way, I'm afraid to "plant" dandelions because I don't want them in the grass. I guess I could plant some in a pot or a flat. Has anybody ever done that? I'd like to get them in the ground ASAP so they are ready for use by Easter; I'm planning an Easter brunch. I'll wait anxiously for your answers. In the meantime, I'll keep reading, and maybe even post again.
P.S. I live in Southern California and it's warm enough to plant right now.
