Upcoming Issues

Queen Anne’s Lace – Daucus carota

This year we’ve got another great line up of herbs coming your way in Herbal Roots zine. Trying to plan out your herb garden for the year? Well, this is what we’ll be teaching about and what you might want to get growing in your garden! Plan ahead and make sure you’ll have the appropriate herbs available each month. I am zoned 6b so while most of these herbs are in their prime during these months, they may fluctuate ahead or behind a month for you depending on your own location. “Off season” herbs, typically December – February, may be at their peak in other locations so be sure to plan accordingly!

Some plants, such as Ashwagandha can be grown in pots and brought in during the colder seasons. Check our Link page for reputable seed and plant sources.

Immature Poke berries and flowers – Phytolacca americana

In 2019, in honor of over 10 years of issues, I will be focusing on “at risk” and endangered species herbs and how to properly cultivate them to help restore them to our natural environments. If you want to get a jump start on growing them, here is the list (not in order):

American Ginseng
Black Cohosh
Blue Cohosh
False Unicorn Root
True Unicorn Root
Wild Yam
