As it’s only had a few views I’ve re-cycled this post from 2018. If you’ve read the post already, many thanks. You belong to a small and exclusive group of supporters!
My garden has a wonderful collection of the Taraxacum flower.
I think they are really beautiful. The bright yellow flowers brighten the garden on even the dullest day.
And the seed head must be one of the finest in the world.
So why is the dandelion so loathed and the number one contender for eradication by the majority of gardeners?
Dandelion is a persistent, perennial weed of lawns, borders and hard surfaces. It’s difficult to eradicate dandelions by digging alone as the deep tap root can regrow and fluffy seeds are readily spread by the wind.
Well, I think dandelions are lovely and I’m pleased to find that Garden Betty agrees with me!
How about you?
Love them or loathe them?
