Hi justjoef:

I can send you some field horsetail.  I currently have some dried from last year; it is nice and green.  Or, I can pick you some fresh field horsetail in July.  Grows wild outside my back yard. Your choice.  If you would like to send me your address: my email account is [email protected] I will send you whichever you prefer, no charge.  I have a list of plants that I am looking for as well, under the barter section in the forums, most especially some prickly pear pads and chaparral.   Maybe if you have something I am looking for you can send me some :)

Best Wishes, Sharon

    Hey Joe:

    Just packaged up some fresh horsetail for you.  I will put it in the mail tomorrow.  Hope it arrives ok, never shipped fresh material before :)  I wrapped them in a cotton flour sack to absorb the moisture.

    Regards, Sharon

    Sharon,

    Thank you so much! I'm very appreciative. I'll let you know once it arrives. Please let me know if you'd like me to reciprocate with the same (oak-bark/chaga) as last time, or if there is something else since added to your request list that is carried by mountainrose or another supplier.

    Kind Regards,

    Joe

    I bought the equisetum horsetail from a local nursery and keep it in wide buckets full of water and mud, also some leaves or rotting materials to imitate a pond setting as much as possible.

    They are doing well, growing lots of spears for harvest.  I have picked some previously as Doug Simons advised.  Some of them turned brown, but most stayed green.  My coffee grinder can't pulverize all of it thoroughly, but good enough.

    Thanks for the tip NC Colbert. I do plan on growing my own, but don't see that happening until the spring. It's good to know it does well just growing in buckets, as that will probably be my initial attempt. Thanks for the input!
