Dandelions plants

Dandelions plantsDandelions on lawns, etc., may be killed by cutting them down as low as possible, and putting a pinch of salt on the wound. Or they may be dug up. In this case plant six roots in an 8 inch pot, and place an inverted flower-pot over the whole, in order to exclude the light; the plants are sometimes blanched in the open by covering them with fine ashes. The flowers must be kept picked off, for they soon run to seed, and if unattended to become troublesome.
