Question:

Are pansy flowers really edible? Also, how cold can they really take it? When will you have pansies available?

Answer:

Hi Julie,

Good Questions!

First of all, yes, pansies are edible, but like anything you put in your mouth, make sure they’ve been washed thoroughly before you add them to your dinner plate.

Next, pansies don’t like temps too much cooler than 35f, though they have been known to handle a light frost.  For pansies, the best practice is to bring your plants in on the coldest nights, even if just into a garage.  If you can’t lug your pots inside, a cotton or cloth sheet can act as a shield to protect the foliage and flowers from frost.

And finally, the most exciting news is that Sunnyside Gardens should have pansies available around the first week of April.  We can’t wait for color to start hitting the neighborhood doorsteps!
