    Good question!

    I was just looking into goldenrod the other day after I noticed we had quite a few flowering on our property.

    Thanks for the information Heather and Cherlynn!

    Golden rod is blossoming here now, so I will collect some for my herbal teas. But I am in competition with my bees. They love it too!!! So, I will wait a bit and take what is left from bees 😊

    do you collect the blossoming tops, or other parts of the plant as well?
