Default Edible Flowers for Parrots

Article II - Kitchen Physician XI - Edible Flowers For Parrots
by Carolyn Swicegood


"Do not use flowers from florists, nurseries or garden centers.
Unless otherwise stated, these flowers have almost certainly been treated with pesticides which were not intended for food crops.
Chemicals are used in all phases of ornamental growth and these chemicals are unsafe for human or parrot consumption.
Flowers picked from the side of the road never should be eaten by human or parrot. Highly poisonous herbicides are used to eliminate weeds and plants bordering roadways so roadside flowers can be deadly fare."

The best flowers to use are those you grow organically yourself!

"One of the best books for identifying safe flowers is Thomas S. Elias and Peter A. Dykeman's Edible Wild Plants: A North American Field Guide (Sterling Publishing Company)."
