Very Hardy

Very hardy little seeds, but VERY small. All you can do is sow them rather than plant them, unless you're a Barbie doll or something and have exceptionally tiny hands. I just threw a few pinches of them around the surface of a large, filled planting container and then spread a little bit of dirt over them, then watered them. I need to eat dandelion for my liver, so I planted them around September 1, in spite of most of the growing season being over. Took them well over a month to make an appearance, and just when the first little seedlings appeared, my dog Lucky nosed through the container, rooting up all the dirt with her muzzle. She'd never done that before, and she thought it was great fun. I put the container outside of her reach and smoothed it all down again. I thought she had ruined the seedlings, but in a couple weeks they popped up again and really began to flourish.

I keep them in a sunny corner outside. When I first planted them I mixed topsoil and cow poop 50-50, but I have not added anything other than water to them. What do you expect? They are dandelions! Very hardy. Still too early to taste them.
