Having a deep tap root makes Comfrey a little difficult to get established in some soils but once settled it seems to last for years.
Because it contains phosphorus, potassium, calcium and allantoin it is extremely useful as a healing agent speeding up the cell renewal in damaged muscle.
A tea made from the old Comfrey leaves as you clean up around them, is fantastic as a compost accelerator.
As well as seed, we sell root divisions and potted plants on our Nursery site. Comfrey root cuttings, travel well by post and the resulting plant is much much faster than growing from seed.
A poultice of the leaves is also useful in the healing of cuts and bruises and root tincture added to an ointment base has worked well for us in the treatment of arthritic joints.
As the Comfrey's only seed every other year, we will not have more until 2014.
