People seem decidedly polarized regarding this happy little survivor.
Our attitude towards Dandilion depends on which part of the garden we are in at the time. In some areas it is a noxious weed but just around the corner, it’s wonderful.
We use the Dandelion leaves to pick up the zing in salads occasionally, ferment the flowers to create a real ‘down home’ wine, pickle the buds, because we can’t seem to grow capers, and use the root in our ‘Liver clean’ formula.
Dandelion will grow well in pots and in some ways I think that it is best kept that way as the soil is generally more friable allowing the root to grow to generous size for harvesting.
Our major use of this herb is homeopathic.
We only sell packets of 50 seeds as this is more than enough to start a very healthy crop.
