  6. I am a writer working on a book (my tenth) for HarperCollins. The book is called A Garden of Marvels about the history of, and cutting-edge developments in, botany. I’d like to write about Botanicalls, but I’m technologically challenged. (In fact, I’m hoping this isn’t a redundant email.) Can you help me get an assembled kit for temporary use, so I can write about what it’s like to use Botanicalls? Many thanks, Ruth Kassinger, 301-652-5359
