BEFORE YOU TEAR THEM OUT - PLEASE READ!!! Dandelions are (usually) the first flowers in the spring! The first nector source for polinators, bees, butterflies, bugs! They can grow just about anywhere...in any soil condtion.
Though their yellow heads are flowers to us, and they’re actually a member of the daisy family, botanists consider the dandelion to be an herb, the entire body of a dandelion from bloom to stem is edible. They actually have more nutrients and are better for you than many of the vegetables in your garden.
While many people think of dandelions as weeds that are a nuisance in the yard, they’re actually quite good for the grass as their roots spread wide, acting as an aerator for the soil, while their roots also soak up nutrients from the deeper soil and spread those nutrients throughout the yard, working as fertilizer. However, since dandelions aren’t exactly wanted in a yard, many homeowners have discovered just how difficult it is to get rid of them; dandelions are a hard flower to kill.
I SEE NO REASON TO KILL THEM..............WHY ?? OUR POLUNIATORS REALLY DO NEED THEM.
