Friend or Foe ?

Friend or Foe ?

One stiff gust of wind will launch dozens of these seeds out into the world, some of them may settle into a garden or lawn where they may not be welcome. According to the website http://www.beyondpesticides.org “Herbicides account for the highest usage of pesticides in the home and garden sector with over 90 million pounds applied on lawns and gardens per year.” That is a lot of herbicide ! Maybe your lawn doesn’t have to look like a golf course ? The Dandelion ( Taraxcum officinale ) has been used medicinally, as a vitamin rich food, a dye plant, a wine ingredient, and a herbal fertilizer for 100’s of years.
