Dandelion Seeds - 50+ Seeds

Dandelions are abundant growers however, they are also a highly nutritious food source. The greens are high in calcium, iron, vitamin C, and potassium, as well as being low in calories. Dandelion leaves, flowers, and roots can all be eaten. They’re good for you, they’re good for your soil with their long taproots, and pollinators love them. The key to growing dandelions is to make sure they don’t go to seed, so they don’t spread. Also, it is better to grow your own dandelions than to harvest from lawns or places where they may be treated with pesticides or other chemicals.

Dandelion leaves and flowers can be used in salads, dried to make teas, or cooked in dishes in place of or in combination with other bitter greens. The roots can be roasted, ground and used as a coffee substitute.

Pop some dandelions in a pot alongside one of your veggie patches and watch the bees flock in whilst enjoying this delicious plant in salads
