Buy dandelion seeds to grow for the table
You can get the same seeds from the Organic Garden Catalogue too.

Enough said. I wasn't looking for that at all but it came up. Think I might give it a pass.  ::)

It gets better - one of the plot holders did grow dandelions to eat and is willing to share the seeds with us.

Sounds as though this should have been posted on last Thursday (look at the date  :wub: ::) :lol: )
I try to take one day at a time, but sometimes several days all attack me at once...

I recall one eco friendly firm trying to sell creeping Buttercup at £3.50 a pot !
Trying to find another way of doing Bindweed to death i found an 18th century article on how to propagate it !
