    Hola all,

    I stumbled on this website when researching dandelions, not that there are any near where I live now. I was born and raised on Vancouver Island, but have lived on the southwest coast of Mexico for many years. Many of my favourite herbs flourish here (sheltered from the salt breeze) but others don't survive the rainy season.

    Hi Eddy, Welcome to Gardenstew from Chelmsford MA, USA. I suppose some areas of the world do miss out on the annual lawn nemesis. That is one flower that would be hard to find in a seed catalog:). I have been known to have them in a salad, aside from that, the trash can is the next stop for any I find inhabiting my lawn.

    Bonjour, @SeaEddy! There is certainly a lot to learn about plants.

    Hi SeaEddy :wave:
    Welcome to Gardenstew from Southern Ontario!
    I let dandelions grow in my rural yard ... food for the bees and lots of creatures!
