HOW TO GROW FRENCH DANDELION

Start indoors 8 weeks before last frost, plant out after last frost. Or direct sow 1 week before last frost in rows and thin to 6–12”. Germination variable. Treat as biannual, sow one year, harvest the next. Keep moist during warm months. Keep the plants picked to enjoy the mildest leaves. Growing in the shade also reduces bitterness. Enjoy blanched leaves in the fall by covering with a flower pot for three weeks. Blanching reduces bitterness. Plants may survive for 10 to 13 years in undisturbed locations. French dandelion will likely cross with the wild plants. To save seed, grow in isolation from other dandelions of about 1 mile. Surface sow, press into soil, do not cover. Soil pH 6.8–7.2. Hardiness zones 3–10. Perennial.

Federal germination standard: 60%. Usual seed life: 3–5 years. Isolation distance for seed saving: 1/2 mile.

Planting Depth surface requires light
Soil Temp. Germ. 60–77˚F
Days to Germ. 7–21
Plant Spacing 5–12”
Row Spacing 18”
Days To Maturity 95
Full Sun, Moist Well Drained Soil

This thick-leaved improved strain grows 18–24” and is slower to bolt than other varieties. It has tender fleshy leaves, and best enjoyed fresh when leaves are young or cooked like spinach.

This thick-leaved improved strain grows 18–24” and is slower to bolt than other varieties. It has tender fleshy leaves, and best enjoyed fresh when leaves are young or cooked like spinach. It’s delicious blanched with onions, raisons and balsamic vinegar. Dandelion salads are often accompanied with hard boiled eggs. Yellow flower heads are edible and can be made into wine. Baked roots are ground to make a coffee substitute. The popular name comes from “dente de lion”, French for lion’s tooth, referring to the jagged edged teeth on the leaves. It ranks highest of all other fruits and vegetables for iron content. Medicinally all parts of the plant can be used as a diuretic, as it stimulates the kidney without causing loss of potassium. It’s also used for liver and gall bladder congestion, as a mild laxative, increases appetite, and improves digestion. In the garden, dandelion is a dynamic accumulator that pumps soil minerals from the roots to the surface as leaf litter. Also see Chicory for similar selections. Also known as Dandelion Ameliore. Tags: Color: Green, Season: Spring Fall, Seed: Safe Seed Pledge.

Native to Eurasia and now is naturalized throughout North America, southern Africa, South America, New Zealand, Australia, and India. Delicious dandelion recipes."
