To flower, or not to flower...

Now that we are having a daily dandelion plant it occurred to me that not all of you may be getting the full benefit of them. We eat the flowers as well as the leaves, do you?

I eat the flowers first, and then the top half of the rosette, but I leave the lower stalks, usually.

B is using me to eradicate them from his alpine garden. He has some huge ones in there.

This is a question for much consideration. First of all I am a white bunny and so if the flower is held beneath my chin and my fur looks yellow that means I like butter. I must try that .. the only time we got flowers we ate them up fast. Anyway, you colored bunnies can not try that. No prob. since you would not like butter, it is not for bunnies.

Now then, landscapers should not kill dandelions and stuff. Boogey needs to educate them. Just pull the dandelions out and feed them to rabbits.

Lastly, how many dandelion leaves are OK in a day. Bunny Lady thinks maybe two or three are plenty, along with our regular foods.

2 or three leaves? if you were outside where they were growing you would eat millions!

Me and Millie share a whole plant a day

dad and i agree - dandylions are horrid, why have nasty weeds when you can have lovely herbs and fresh rocket hand fed to you by mummy.

Definately the flowers, roots and leaves. The more the better ;)

I'm sorry to shock you but we don't get dany-lions.

In our opinion this amounts to cruelty & neglect and we would ask some-bun to report our two-foots to the appropriate orthorities please.

They will try to justify it by saying they don't grow in our garden & the only ones they see are covered in ex-orst fumes. But we think they just don't try hard enough - what do you buns think?!

It's a dis-grace!!!

ask your mummy to go to the co-op and get some organic dandelions. whenever Mom can afford to, she buys me some.

my mom is seriously considering buying dandelion seeds and growing mine in the small room. Indoor dandelions will be safe for me to eat. stupid 2foots are poison mad when it comes to this free tasty treat!!!
