Grow Dandelion from fresh Taraxacum officinale seeds. Dandelion is often seen in empty fields, along highways and most commonly seen in our own backyards. It is usually considered to be a pesky weed, but what you may not know is, Dandelions are actually delicious herbs that many people grow in their herb gardens! There are many uses for Dandelion plants, some are medicinal and often times the leaves and flowers of dandelions can be eaten in salads, or used as a garnish.


A Dandelion herb plant will reach a mature height of anywhere between 8 to 18 inches tall. The leaves are tender and the stems are hollow. Dandelion flowers sit at the very top of the very tightly formed plants and are roughly 1 to 1.5 inches in diameter. Grown as a perennial, the Dandelion plant will grow very quickly, bloom, but die with the first frost to return the year after if the roots are kept in tact. Seeds can be collected, or fall to the bare ground to regrow the following season.


As stated above, Dandelion herbs have a number of medicinal uses as well as culinary uses. The leaves of these strong growing plants are known to be beneficial to ones health. Just one cup full of chopped Dandelion leaves will provide you with 10% of your daily recommended value of calcium! They are also a great source of Iron & protein and are loaded with essential vitamins & minerals as well. The nutrients in Dandelion greens may help reduce the risk of cancer, multiple sclerosis, cataracts, age-related macular degeneration and stroke.


When growing Dandelion herbs from fresh Dandelion herb seeds, you will find that they are not difficult to establish at all. They are among one of the easiest plants to grow, as well as maintain and require literally no special treatment.

SOWING THE SEED

Dandelion seeds can be started indoors or established directly outdoors. Sow at a depth of 1/16” under topsoil, in peat pots, 6 to 8 weeks prior to the last frost. Transplant into the garden from peat pots when the weather is warm. Direct sow seeds outdoors after all danger of frost has passed. Allowing direct sunlight to reach the seeds is a critical part of the germination process.

GROWING CONDITIONS

Dandelion will grow virtually anywhere as they are categorized as a weed in most states. They thrive in full sunlight or partial shade and will also tolerate both cool & warm climates as well. The soil can be poor to fertile, although Dandelion prefers rich soils. Water daily so that the soil is kept moist until germination occurs.

GERMINATION & GROWTH

Seeds will begin to germinate within 14 to 28 days after sowing. The plants will reach a mature height of around 8 to 18 inches tall and can be spaced about 12 to 18 inches apart from one another. Dandelion produces yellow blooms atop edible serrated leaves.
