Selling a Weed: A Question About Dandelions


Hello. Silly question perhaps, but I have dandelions growing in my yard: do you know of any stores (a grocery, an apothecary) that would buy them from me? Otherwise, I’ll just pluck them out and throw them away.

(Note: we don’t use pesticides in our yard.)

Thank you.


Thanks for contacting Toronto Master Gardeners. Dandelions are used for herbal medicines.  My guess that for the sake of quality control herbalists would only buy from commercial growers of dandelions.  However if you want to confirm this you could try phoning a local herbalist to find out if they would buy them.
