Q. Can they be eaten?
A. The petals come from commercially grown roses and so we cannot guarantee that they won’t have been sprayed with pesticides by the growers. We have certainly used no chemicals/sprays on them during the drying process. So, in the interests of health and safety, we have of course tried them, with no ill effects! You, however, may want to use them purely for visual decoration!
