Symphytum officinale.

Native to Europe, Comfrey is an easy to grow plant that spreads easily once established.

From summer to autumn, mauve bell shaped flowers will appear.

The plant enjoys a part shade position in fertile, well drained soil.

Comfrey is used medicinally in many ways. The leaves and roots can be made into a poultice and applied to sprains, bruises and broken bones to assist with healing.

The leaves are great for adding to compost or they can be made into a liquid feed.

When planted in the ground, Comfrey 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.

Comfrey is great for assisting with compacted soils and for helping to stabilise slopes. It can be used as a weed suppressant and the chopped leaves make a great mulch.
