Natural Detox for Soil

If you are dealing with soil that has had weed killers and other pesticides, herbicides or chemicals used on it, you may be surprised to find out that the BEST plant to grow on that soil to cleanse it is dandelion.
Other plants that work very well to detoxify contaminated soil are:
• Brake fern
• Willow trees
• Sunflowers
• Poplar trees
• Indian mustard

Of course, I wouldn’t recommend using any parts of these plants as they will have absorbed the pesticides and chemicals!
