Looking to buy dandelions

Does anybody have dandelion flowers? Either wild weeds or flowers you planted? My little store got orders but I am out.

Must not be sprayed with chemicals, fertilizers though, people eat these, make wine  etc so must be pure and ethical. Hopefully just a yard, but not close to a major highway or anything.

I am on the east coast, will dandelion flowers come back???

I happen to live in the dandelion capital of the world lol. Around here there are still flowers but not the sea of yellow flowers that were typical a month or two ago.

What sort of thing do you have in mind? Quantity, shipping, time frame etc, etc, etc?

East coast USA?

Thanks!

Have a few orders and need to figure out a price quote for a gallon for wine making.
Messaged you.

There was just a burst of dandelions, I can't believe it is gone, they came up every day, now I have missed it until next year, had I known it was so quick I would have saved everything on an herb dryer rack....for myself...highest source of lechitin in the world.
I have a side business where I sell them.

We had almost zero dandelions this year.  
I hope you find some to help your business, there were't enough around here to even notice, except by their absence.

I have tons right now too. I cut around them in a lot of areas and they just keep coming and coming. And now the clover is blooming too. Lots of happy bees!

I just saw a webpage advertising dandelion seeds...10,000 for $14...with a little work and creativity, you could have a year round supply.  Personally, the dandelion flower is one of my favorites.
 
It's exactly the same and completely different as this tiny ad:
