    :(

    Earliest I have seen a dandy in 28 years.

    Normally don't see them until mid April.

    Really? Was this directly behind a south facing building, getting full glare?
    Still too early for any dandies here yet, even though Spring has started off very mild. They will probably rear their ugly heads a little early this season.

    Saw a tiny dandelion Monday March 22--near a sidewalk--no building. So true Seed, very early--almost 3 weeks ahead of time.

    Oh of course they were against the houses facing the sun but still. 3 weeks earlier than we see that sort of thing.

    There was something mentioned about this in another thread, as well. I had one out in the middle of my backyard. I called trugreen and they said they would be out soon to take care of it for me.

    Funny - Runner, did TG recommend 7 apps to kill that little sucker?:)

    Saw my first little patch of dandies yesterday, at a new customer's lawn. Gonna have to get right back out and hit the lawn for em soon.
