Love a Dandelion.. EMBRACE THEIR BEAUTY
They pop up just about anywhere, pavements, lawns, pots and window boxes. This resilient wonderful common Dandelion is loved by children but maybe not always by grownups.
But Dandelions (Taraxacum officinale) are not an ‘ugly weed’, they are an essential food source for essential pollinators and we can eat them too! So sit back and put your feet up, have a drink, put the mower and the trowel away and watch the bees, butterflies and other pollinators come to play.
If you are used to demonising the dandelion, this may seem a little uncomfortable at first, but know it is the right thing to do and soon joy will appear. Look at that yellow!
PLEDGE to help our community build Marlow’s Nature corridor and leave those lovely Dandelions to do their important work!
