Birthday Giveaway #4: Root Packet

Today’s giveaway is for a packet of roots from my personal herb garden. It will include easy to grow root herbs: comfrey, marshmallow, elecampane, sunchokes and horseradish along with information on how to plant them and what they can be used for medicinally. This packet will not be mailed out until proper planting time so you won’t have to worry about holding on to them until then. This is a great little collection of starter roots to start a new garden for yourself or to add to your existing garden.

For a chance to win this root collection leave a comment. For extra chances to win, comment separately when you:

~blog about your chance to win a copy
~tweet about it
~become a fan of herbal roots zine
~follow us on twitter

and leave a separate comment for each thing you do! Hurry, the giveaway ends Sunday evening (Feb 14) at 8pm! We’ll announce the winner on Monday morning when we announce the next giveaway.

    How exciting! We used to have sunchokes in our garden when I was little, until the rabbits discovered them!!

    Oh that is amazing! A few things are going out of rotation in our raised beds and I have wanted to grow something interesting! I’ve also heard about sunchokes all year long and haven’t ever had one, and I’ve grown flowers for medicinal purposes but never rots!

    Added myself as a Follower on Facebook and Twitter, and retwitted :). I am a herbalist too and that roots are really hard to find where I live (Tenerife, Canary Islands, Spain).

    I remember my whole family canning horseradish in the summer when I was a kid. All the women with bandanas covering their faces against the fumes. I’d love to do it myself again.Hope I win this prize!
