Description How to Grow More Info Delivery Reviews

Grow your own soil conditioner! Comfrey 'Bocking 14' contains high levels of basic NPK nutrients and because it is a sterile hybrid, it won't self seed all over your garden.


The nutrient rich foliage of comfrey can be used as a compost activator, mulch, or soaked in barrels of water for 3 to 5 weeks to make a useful liquid feed for tomatoes and beans. Scatter the wilted leaves throughout potato trenches just before planting, to fertilise the crop and improve their flavour! Once established, this quick growing plant can be cut 3 or 4 times throughout the growing season, for a constant supply of nutrient rich, organic, comfrey fertiliser. Height: 100cm (40"). Spread: 75cm (30").

Water regularly until plants are fully established. To harvest, cut the foliage back to about 15cm 6" above ground level with a pair of shears. Comfrey foliage can be harvested 3 or 4 times throughout the summer. Apply a mulch of well rotted farmyard manure to the comfrey patch in spring and lift and divide overcrowded clumps to maintain their vigour and produce new plants. Caution: Comfrey is harmful if eaten. Contact with the foliage may irritate the skin and eyes. Use gloves when harvesting.
Choose an unused corner of the garden to plant permanent comfrey beds. Add plenty of compost or well rotted manure to the soil prior to planting comfrey plants in blocks spacing them 75cm (30") apart. Grow comfrey plants in moist, fertile, well drained soil in a sunny position.

Bees love this plant 2010-07-11

If you want to help save bees, plant one of these, it's little pink flowers will attract them from far and wide! An aggressive grower, mind the hairs when you cut it back as they can get into your skin!
