Hi Jessica, 
That’s a sneaky advert for humans!  Welcome to the forum but please try to keep to comments about bumblebees and how you can help them in the garden,  after all it is the Bumblebee Conservation Trust forum.  Never heard of Yacon hurb,  is it a bumble-friendly garden plant? - a native species?  surely there are far more interesting and useful bumble-friendly “best plants” for us to consider?  What flowers do you grow in your garden for your local bumbles?  If you are a “Newbie”, that’s a good place to start.  Which bumbles visit your garden?  If there were any winter-active bumbles visiting my garden today, I reckon a couple of “best plants” to grow would be Lonicera purpusei and Mahonia sp.  Of course, not forgetting the Pulmonaria and other members of the Borage family [eg: white ground-cover comfrey], for the long-tongued Hairy-footed Flower Bees [ black[f] & brown[m] - those fascinating early solitary bees that look just like small bumbles, whose males often emerge by the end of February, if the weather is kind.  Keep watch too for early bumble queens. Bombus terrestris and B. pratorum,  emerging from hibernation.

Yacon is a perpetual herb plant which is 1.5 to 3 m tall and with dark green leaves. Usuallythe plant produces both male and female daisy-like yellow to orange blossoms that are pollinated by insects. Andevery plant structures an underground cluster of 4 to 20 plump substantial tuberous roots. This plant is a part of the sunflower family keeping in mind it develops in the warm, calm valleys of the Andes; and it might be discovered at elevations up to 3200 meters. Usuallyit is local to the easier Andes districts and cloud timberlands of South America and could be discovered in Peru, Bolivia, Ecuador, and Colombia as well.And Yacon roots are the only source of this syrup,visit http://syrupsyrup357.wordpress.com/2013/12/19/yacon-syrup-for-your-healthy-life/
