YOu'll have to get some seeds from a feild or some where you see them. I don't believe you can get them any where because they are considered a weed and there really aren't very many people that want them. They will spread so I hope your neighbors don't mind...

Personally - I'm allergic which is why I don't like them. But here's a website with some facts on them:

A weed is just a flower that hasn't found it's purpose.


I love them too. You can also use their greens in the early spring in salads or a "spring tonic."


My dd has planted them allover a part of our feild just blowing dandelion fluffs. It's right next to our poor neighbor who is totally anal about his grass. He'll be out there with his herbicide cursing us this summer I'm sure.

You might want to check with the local governing body. Dandelions like thistles spread so easily they become uncontrollable especially in rural areas. Many local jurisdiction can actually fine the owner of property who fail to control the pest. This is especially true of farm areas. But we all have a few and that is understood ... but planting them might not be as easy to explain.
