    Depends on whether you want a honeymoon in the Maldives or Holloway prison-but not recommended

    It doesn't say anything about picking the flowers being forbidden and I doubt that she wants to put bulbs on her wedding cake, but as all parts of the plants are poisonous I wouldn't recommend using the flowers either.

    I think you can get a spell in Holloway for poisoningimage

    Definitely a bad idea!! Make some with blue icing maybe?

  • No!they are not edible they are or were use for dyes,hyacinths are poisonous even to touch,daffs or tulips,oh please get a book on what is edible .I don't want to see you in emergency ,most things are not edible(flower bulbs) and those that are you have to be sure about.not even for icing.please bluebells the native variety are protected and must not be picked and the others are for decoration.

    How about using blue violas (mini pansies)? They are on sale now and although not completely blue (they usually have a coloured "face" in the middle) they are very pretty and definitely not poisonous.
