Description

Why Russian Bocking 14 Comfrey?

 

Russian Bocking 14 Comfrey has long been a permaculture favorite of both farmers and gardeners because of its many uses.  Comfrey plants reduce soil compaction and bring nutrients to the soil surface.  The Russian Bocking-14 Comfrey plants are sterile and therefore aren’t spread by seed.  However, they will spread if the root system is disturbed either by tilling or otherwise cutting the root system into smaller pieces.

 

Comfrey has a long tap root that “mines” nutrients and minerals from deep within the soil  and brings them up into its leaves.  The leaves can be harvested up to four times per year depending on your climate.  You can use the leaves: 

  • As a chop and drop mulch. 
  • To make a “tea” by soaking them in a bucket of water and applying directly to your plants. 
  • As feed for animals. 
  • To make compresses for healing wounds.
  • To make salves

 

What You Will Receive

On average our Bocking 14 Comfrey roots crowns are 2″-4″ in length and range from the size of a pencil to 1″ in diameter.

 

How to Plant

Bocking 14 Comfrey root crowns quickly establish new plants.  Plant comfrey root crowns with the growth bud just below the soil.  Root crowns will do best if planted in a loamy soil with a high nitrogen content and watered regularly until established.

 

What to Expect After Planting

Comfrey provides a beautiful visual display that features broad leaves and purple flowers during the summer months.  These flowers attracts a wide array of nectar seeking pollinators like bees and other insects.

 

Russian Bocking 14 Comfrey makes an excellent ground cover and weed barrier along a fence row.  It will out compete nuisance weeds with its leafy canopy.
