Comfrey Bocking 14 (Symphytum)

This is a non-spreading variety of comfrey.

Clump-forming herbaceous hardy perennial reaching over 1m/3ft high with prolific, long, broad, hairy basal leaves and bell-shaped pinkish/purple flowers in early summer.

Comfrey is said to be a great mineral (especially potassium) accumulator plant due to its long tap root.  Works well planted around fruit trees.  The plant can also be cut several times a year and the foliage placed on soil as a mulch.

Comfrey can also be used to make liquid fertilizer.  Place cut foliage into a container and weigh down with a board and bricks and cover.  After a few days, a thick dark liquid will form.  Dilute with water at a ratio 1:10.
