... that I brought back a comfrey from that plant swap! Great article! Mine is sending up green leaves also, and now I know some things I can do with them. I especially appreciated the info on being able to cut it back several times during the season, once established.
I love my comfrey, using the dried leaves in the compost and I had read to use them as a liquid tea in one of my herbal books. Now, I will need to try that for sure. I'll just have to be careful when brewing the comfry fertilizer tea as I often find my pets sipping from the rain barrels or plant water.
I hope you enjoy your comfrey plant for years to come.
Good morning~~ and thanks for your responses. ^_^
c~~Wasn't that just last spring? The hunk I brought back here and gave no special care, I just divided a few weeks ago into three nice size pieces I replanted, and made three pots for further swapping ( momma bear, daddy bear and baby bear sized pots, the 'baby' being just some roots in hopes I can see them sprout)
podster-- you're quite welcome. I'm excited too, after reading from those who are comitted to using comfrey tea liquid.
From what I read, it's likely is doing better than you think and can never die! I might not have divided mine except that I was anxious to see how it did, becuase of the article . Lot of roots on that thing.
