Dandelion leaves and buds can be consumed as a wine or a tea or eaten as a salad raw or blanched. They grow well in shaded and also full sun. The leaves are milder in flavour whe grown in shade or blanched before picking. The roots when roasten and ground make a delicious coffee like substitute when percolated. The roots are well regarded for bringing nutrients from deep in the soil to the surface once again. Dandelions are rich in many vitamins, particularly Vitamins A, C, and K. They also contain significant amounts of calcium, potassium, iron and manganese. Historically it was prized for a variety of medical problems.
