● Being extremely cold hardy down to USDA zones 3 through 10 makes the horsetail an appealing plant for Prepper gardens all over the United States. The plant usually grows three to four feet tall and loves to be planted near a water source, such as creeks and rivers, and prefers to be planted in partial shade. Horsetail is considered to be a fast-growing plant and will spread in size, providing an abundance of material from which to make medicine. Soil type is not really a concern, as long as the site location is close enough to a water source. In addition to being a medicinal plant for Preppers, horsetail grass is abrasive and can be used as a natural scrub/brush, making this a highly adaptable, highly useful plant for consideration in your Prepper garden.
