Ep 47- Dandelion Leaf: Herbal Extract Company

Join Geraldine & Christine from the Herbal Extract Company as we discuss the humble dandelion, probably the most familiar plant in the world! While children make wishes on the fuzzy heads of dandelions, lawn enthusiasts tend to curse the cheery yellow flowers when they appear. And for good reason. Dandelions are opportunistic and will push out grass and other plants, as well as sapping water and nutrients away from surrounding plants. Which is the very reason why herbalists cherish this voracious weed which is full of nourishment. They understand that this master of survival is not as much of a pest as most people think. There are many benefits to leaving this tough plant in the yard rather than poisoning the earth to be rid of it.
