One of the most problematic flowers of the summer for gardeners is the dandelion, which tend to pop out all over the place. These flowers tend to spread fast since the flower first turns yellow, then it turns into cotton-like balls that include seeds and get blown away by the wind. Which is why this flower tends to repopulate so quickly. But not so fast, even though gardeners and those that love their lawn perfectly green hate to see the sight of any yellow dandelion, you should know that dandelions could be eaten (including the root) and they are actually a green source for your health.
