   His mother Nina believes that a cold spring and hot summer may have provided perfect growing conditions. Previous registered world record dandelion has only 100 centimeters (39.37 inches).

    The family ensured that two independent witnesses viewed the plant - Principal Turid Tvedt from Kløvheim School and journalist Jon Tjore of the local newspaper Strilen - and they could confirm that it was 108 centimeters.
