I am obsessed, a little, with growing my dandelions. However, they don’t seem to want to grow. I may have mentioned in a previous post that they can take up to a month to germinate. Ask anyone with dandelions in their yard and they’ll tell you they “grow like weeds”. Eventually they do but it takes some time to get them started. For the weekend gardener with a beautiful yard of lush grass that can be good news but for someone that wants to grow them it can test your patience.
Meanwhile, I’ve found some more great articles on the benefits of dandelion. The first article is about how to use the root and includes several recipes. The second article touts additional benefits and recipes such as Dandelion Root Pancakes and Dandelion Flower Syrup.
Hope you enjoy reading these.
