Comfrey Bocking 14

Some friends of mine are giving up their allotment (very sad!), so I’ve managed to blag some Comfrey (Bocking 14) from them. This will eventually be moved onto my Allotment in the future, but for now I’ve got a small patch of “naturalised stinging nettles” at the front of the garden, which I’ve reserved for Borage and Comfrey. So no time like the present to dig over and plant the “tubers/roots”.

Comfrey (Bocking 14) is sterile, and therefore will not set seed, so if someone has sold you seed you’ve been robbed! It can only be propagated by root cuttings. This is very useful addition to the organic garden, in creating organic liquid fertilizers, compost activator, mulch and potting mixture.

Many Thanks to Vickie and Andew for the Comfrey!
