Does anyone know where to buy dandelion flowers?

I'd like to try my hand at making dandelion wine and need (obviously) dandelion flowers - an entire GALLON of them! That's what the recipe calls for. That's a lot of traveling around and finding dandelions and hoping they haven't been sprayed with poison! Anyone?
Have a great weekend, Linda
I found one! Now I just need about 100 more... ;)

  • What people do around us is simply knock on doors and ask the owners if they can pluck the flowers on their lawns. If there are chemicals on the lawns most likely you will know based upon how many flowers the lawn has. Those that are covered with them tend not to have anything placed on the lawns. Those yards that look nice with only a few are the ones you want to stay away from. I would check out local farms that have animals. Lots of fields have these weeds and normally are not treated with anything that would hurt the animals. Most township parks are the same. They cannot spread any chemicals that kids could be harmed from and with current budgets in most towns they cannot afford to do it anyway.

    Hi, being from CT, you must realize no one sells dandelion seeds as we spend thousands trying to get rid of them, in our lawns. Go to a field and just pick till you drop. You'll have great wine and can think about the 60's...:) Lynn

      @Lynn Zawojski hahahaha...the 60s weren't so bad, we had a neighbor who spelled IT'S SPRING out in dandelions every spring!

    Could you put an ad on Craigslist? If I saw such an ad on Gumtree (UK version of Craigslist) I'd invite you to come pick til you drop. Or for a small fee, I'd do it too/for you!

    oh heavens,,,, my dad made that when I was little,,and no one used pesticides like today.. I'd check with organic farms in the and ask if they have any they would love you to pick..... I remember helping pick them with my little bucket..... until ababy snake ran in front of me. That ended my picking!

    I haven't had any luck finding whole dandelions yet (I'm in Houston) I did find greens at Whole Food, but I ended up purchasing seeds on EBay and driving my neighbors insane with my "lawn garden". I got 400 organic seeds for .99. And they grow like weeds, hehe. Sorry. I had to! :)

    My grandmother used to take my sister and me to a large state park near our house. We would pick dandelions for hours. Tired and tanned, we set out for home where my grandmother and parents would make a weekend of putting the dandelions and other ingredients together to make wine. I never did see the final result, but I am sure it was enjoyed by all.

    You live in Connecticut is there should be fields in Your area that you can go pick dandelion flowers. I did the mistake of letting my pet pigs eat all the dandy line flowers I can't wait for Spring because I will try my hand on dandelion flower wine. Meanwhile I making Wild Apple wine.

      There had been a lot of rain here last week, so I don't want to pick the flowers unless they're dry on a sunny day.

    They're up!! This is the most exciting time of the year for me.

    Dandelion Flowers

    From pristine mountain source in Hudson Valley, New York. Dandelion flowers contain the highest source of Lecithin in the world. Lecithin helps to prevent arteriosclerosis, protects against cardiovascular disease, improves brain function, helps keep the liver and kidneys healthy, aids in thiamin and vitamin A absorption, and can even help to repair liver damage caused by alcoholism--this nutrient is essential to every living cell in the human body.

    Contains approximately 200 organic dandelion flowers. Use for salads, soups, syrup or wine.

    Our sixth year in harvest, no sprays or pesticides used. Wild plants shoot their roots miles down into the ground, absorbing trace minerals below the soil, this is superfood. Our flowers do not sit for months in storage, they are harvested and shipped right out the next day.

      Hi Alice!

      I ship them out first class/2 day mail at the Post Office. The only delay would be if it rains, as I pick the flowers on sunny days and ship them the same day.

      What beautiful flowers...what was once an annoying weed has so many uses...the flower, the greens and roots.
