For us Brits pls  note  that  neem isnt  supplied  here  as  pesticide  due  Health and  Safety  Law ( Not  funded = Not  suplied )

This  is  awesome  advice  on  pesticides  but  unfortunately,  some  of  the  products  mentioned there  aren't  sold  here  in  the  UK  due  to  HSE  regulations. Neem  oil  is  a  good  example  &  DE (diotomEarth) which  are  only  sold  to  preventional  exterminators  &  pest  control professionals  For  More  details  check  out  My  Blog  on  chemicals    ~  https://spencerrichard01.wordpress.com/2013/07/14/chemical-management/

Rose Petal Honey

Rose Petal Honey | Gardening | Scoop.it

"On my last day in India, I had my first taste of rose petal honey, swirled into the yogurt I ate for breakfast as I sat on a balcony watching the Taj Mahal shimmer through a haze of humidity. Back home, I couldn't forget the taste—sensual, sublime, exotic, and familiar all at once, like India."

 

Virtually all roses are safe to eat; just make sure they're organically grown.  Follow the photo-link to find the recipe.
