The Seed or the Flower? Well, the world may never know. In fact, they may have both emerged at the same time. However, it depends on whom you ask and you may get a different answer. In my case, I'll take either one, In the right circumstances you can have both at the same time, especially during seed drop time. So, save your seeds and make more flowers, Then you'll really know. In your case, it may be the seed and then the flower and then the seed and then the flower. It is a riddle in the circle of plant life that may never be solved. Spring planting time is almost here!!! Get out there and grow something!!!

When Did the Dandelion Become the Enemy?

The Dandelion has been treated very badly in home landscapes across the world, especially in the U.S. where is thought of as nuisance weed. Nothing could be further from the truth. In fact, the Dandelion's roots, leaves and flowers are all edible and are very useful and can be used in teas and salads and both have highly-effective healing properties that help to detoxify the liver of everyday and long-term toxins. So, the next time you think of poisoning a dandelion with a herbicide, think powerful herb, pick it and eat it or let it live.
