Comfrey Bocking 14

In 1954, Britain’s best known organic gardener, Lawrence D. Hills, established a research association in the town of Bocking, north-east of London. Lawrence conducted trials on the various comfrey strains in the UK by measuring yields, disease resistance and composition of the strains, and this variety is the result of his hard work. Easy to grow and popular in permaculture gardens, comfrey has many uses, both as a medicinal herb (ingested and used topically) and as the ultimate companion plant. It is also useful as a food for livestock, from pigs to horses.

How to grow

Easy to grow in most conditions and soil types. Comfrey is a beneficial additive to compost as well as a useful companion plant. Avoid root disturbance as it will multiply vigorously from small root pieces.
