Q: If we don’t grow our own roses at home, how can we find roses we can be sure are not sprayed with pesticides?

Editor: Your best bet is to find roses at a farmers market or from a grower who you can ask about their growing practices. That’s going to be tough, given the season. In this case, I’d look to online sources for edible flowers for roses that are guaranteed safe to eat. Melissa’s Produce and Gourmet Sweet Bontanicals are good places to start.
