Then what? Are you planning on putting them in the ground next year, and how do you "use" them; dry/grind them up? Tell us more!


Indoors for the Winter, Spring plant and remove the leaves, sun dry, and grind up, plus depending upon the amount, I may purify using various procedures on The Internet. Do a Google for more in depth information.

The plant is new to me.
