Comfrey Seeds - Symphytum officinale

Price for Package of 5 seeds.

One of the most useful plants on the allotment with the widest range of uses in a permaculture system of any plant.  Comfrey is a herbaceous perennial herb with large, hairy leaves and grows in a rosette to 1 m (3’4”) in height. The mauve flowers are bell-like and borne in clusters which are extremely attractive to insects. The leaves are a useful addition to compost or used as mulch, as they contain silica, nitrogen, magnesium, calcium, potassium and iron. Comfrey leaves are about 17% nitrogen (horse manure is about 14%) and the leaves readily decompose when soaked in water to make an organic liquid manure. Comfrey grows in any soil, preferably moist, in sun or part shade.
 
  • Sow from March to June in a seed-bed or in pots indoors.  The seed benefit from being placed in a chilled environment (fridge) for 14-28 days to activate the seed prior to sowing, hence improving germination rates.
  • Sow seeds thinly, 12mm (½in) deep in drills 30cm (12in) apart. Can also be sown in pots or trays under glass and transplanted.
  • Transplant when large enough to handle to 60cm (2ft) apart between plants.
  • Keep well-watered until established.  Leaves can be cut regularly throughout the summer and autumn.
