    I always wondered why they called dandelions 'wee/wet the bed' it turns out it's a natural diuretic, just thought i'd share that

    A bit of useFUL info ....
     
    http://www.leaflady.org/health_benefits_of_dandelions.htm

    Dandelion leaves may be bitter, but less so in spring (a bit like rocket).  They can be eaten in salads,
    are high in minerals and are good for the liver.

    I have made coffee from roasting their roots.  Indeed you can buy dandelion root coffee from health shops.
