Today there were dandelions. This is a great plant, which unfortunately many still do not feed regularly. In my new series of posts about food plants, I would like to introduce you to some all-rounders!
Parts to feed
The whole plant is one of the most important food plants for all green foraging birds.
The widespread dandelion is a valuable medicinal plant for both humans and animals.
However, please be careful when picking:
Weedkillers may have been used on neatly tended plots.
Do not pick dandelions on or near agricultural land because of over-fertilisation.
Please also do not pick along busy
roads due to pollution.
Inhaltsstoffe und Wirkung
The plant has a blood-cleansing, diuretic and appetite-stimulating effect in birds.
If your birds do not accept veggies well,you can also make a tea.
April to November
