Description

Symphytum officinale.

Comfrey is a great plant to help your garden as it has many beneficial uses. It is super easy to grow and spreads easily once established.

It is a herbaceous plant with long hairy leaves. From summer to autumn it will produce mauve, bell shaped flowers to attract attention. It loves well drained soil in a part shade location and will grow to a maximum height of 80cm.

The leaves can be added to mulch and compost. They decompose readily and as they contain more silica, nitrogen, magnesium, calcium, potassium and iron than most commercially sold feeds, they’ll add heaps of goodness and make a strong mulch. The plant itself (planted in the garden) sends its roots deep into the soil and accesses nutrients that cannot be reached by shallow rooted plants. This allows nutrients that were not absorbed by the other plants to be brought back to the surface. The leaves can also be turned into a liquid feed to assist plants not wanting to be mulched.
