Edible Wild Plants For Your Garden – When picking edible plants in your wildlife garden, it is crucial that you can properly identify them, because many are similar in appearance to poisonous plants. They may not all be tasty or particularly flavorful, but many are quite nutritious. Tubers, leaves, flowers and stems of many plants are edible. Some can be eaten raw and others are best boiled, roasted, or used in soups or tea.
The optimum time to ensure proper identification is when the plants are flowering, since most have a unique appearance of flowers or fruits. To make extra certain if in doubt observe the plant through the growing season if it is possible.
