Ah, the amazing benefits of growing your own edible roses indoors! First off, they can be used in an array of different recipes. Think salads, desserts, teas, coffee and tonic syrup. And let's not forget about how pretty and elegant they are!
Health-wise, they're packed with antioxidants and vitamins, giving your immune system a boost. Plus, when you grow them yourself, you know they're free of nasty pesticides and chemicals. It's cost-effective too— store bought roses can be expensive! So let's get into the basics of how to grow these beautiful roses!
- Choose an edible rose variety (like Rosa Rugosa or Rosa Damascena)
- Select a spacious pot/container with good drainage.
- Fill the container with nutrient-rich potting soil of your choosing.
- Plant a rose cutting or small rose bush, ensuring the roots are covered with soil.
- Place the pot/container in a sunny spot with at least six hours of sunlight per day.
- Water regularly. Keep the soil moist but not drenched!
- Good air circulation is important to prevent diseases.
- Use a trellis or stakes for support as the rose plant grows.
- Fertilize with a balanced organic fertilizer! Check out our DIY Banana peel fertilizer blog!
- Harvest pesticide and enjoy in salads, desserts, baked goods, dried, or as a garnish!
*Remember to keep an eye out for pests and diseases.
