    Default Need Seed Help...

    My fella, Roger, and I have combed the jungles (and the crap in our back yard) to gather the necessary plants to make our medicines for over 7 years now. We have found that there are just a few herbs that Central American jungles just can't excel at...and it's these seeds that I'm in need of. If there's anyone out there that's coming for a visit soon, I need a mule!

    What I'm looking for is:
    Saw Palmetto
    Calendula
    Milk Thistle

    I am in need of one pack of each. Quizás you can help? I'm more than willing to pay for seed packs and shipping to your house, beers when you arrive in Nicaland, whatever. Gracias for any help!

    My new project at Eden is loaded with saw palmetto! We just built the earthworm (vermicomposting) house with a saw palmetto thatched roof. I´m not sure if the seeds are ripe yet, though. I´ll check when I get back there from Managua.

    Melissa,

    I could be wrong, but isn't saw palmetto the one they use to make the roof on the ranchos? If so, you can finds lots of then in La paz Centro.

    Thanks folks, looks like Marlies is gonna help me out on this one. The stuff used on the ranchos is similar but not exactly what I need, it doesn't have all the awesome medicinal properties to cure prostrate problems...they do make for some pretty and rustico buildings though!
