Medicinally, we reach for echinacea when we’re wanting to boost our immune system before we have symptoms. Once we have symptoms like swollen lymph nodes & phlegm that isn’t clear, we reach for Boneset. We harvest her flowering tops and most often make tincture, though you can easily dry and drink her (impressively bitter) tea, as well. Though pharmaceutical companies now dictate how our society thinks about medicine, health and healing, we can still grow our own medicine, Friends. And we must. We’re so honored to share these seeds with you.

We sow Boneset in  soil blocks, as wild plants prefer, about 6 weeks before final frost to transplant out after final frost.
