DANDELION (Taraxacum officinale)
The common Dandelion makes a useful addition to the salad bowl. Cultivated Dandelions are far superior to those which can be gathered from the fields. Seeds can be sown in March or April in drills in. apart and about 1 in. deep. Thin theto 1 ft. apart and keep the hoe going through the growing season. In spring the leaves should be blanched for use in salads by inverting pots over the plants. Never allow them to flower or the garden will be swamped with Dandelion .
