"Bocking 14 Russian Comfrey" is a dynamic accumulator that grows heartily in USDA zones 7-10. Comfrey is an indispensable plant in any garden. Comfrey’s long taproot dives deep, breaking up hard clay soils, pulling minerals to the surface for other plants to absorb. This makes comfrey an excellent addition to your fruit tree guilds and permaculture food forests. In our gardens, we plant comfrey along each garden section, to easily chop and drop the nutrient-dense leaves as a feeding mulch. In addition to mulch, you can ferment comfrey leaves in water to make liquid fertilizer, or even use it as chicken feed! Add chopped comfrey leaf to your compost to speed up the decomposition process and add vital nutrients. Bees and other pollinators LOVE Comfrey.

The best part about Bocking-14 Russian Comfrey is that it doesn’t make seeds! To propagate, simply dig up a slice of root and plant where needed. Comfrey is easy to grow, drought and frost tolerant, and our comfrey root is grown organically with love in the mountains above Santa Cruz, California.


How to plant:
*Dig a small hole.
* Remove the paper towel from the root and place one root cutting per hole.
*Space comfrey at least 4' apart - they can get big! We space ours about 6ft apart.
*Fill the hole and water.
*You should see new sprouts in about 10-18 days.

Cut your comfrey back as needed. In our USDA Zone 9, we get at least 4-5 crops of comfrey, per plant, in each growing season!
