Russian Comfrey

There are various types of Comfrey but I have chosen to grow the Russian Comfrey Bocking #14. This is one of my best green manure which I simply chop and drop. It’s the time of the year when it begins its crazy growth and the leaves get gigantic, so more chopping & dropping coming.

I use Comfrey as poultice when I bruise my poor feet on long jogs or plain impact injury. So far ~ it has worked ~ fast healing. It is blooming time and the one under my Loquat tree is the 1st to bud.

  1. I agree as comfrey is not something I can use in the products I sell here in Canada. It is banned for selling but can be used for personal use. Funny that most other places can sell it but not in Canada. I found out when doing research and wanted to buy it for my products and that is when I found all the info on it and that I couldn’t buy it but I could use it for myself.
