Comfrey

Post  SQWIB on 1/3/2018, 10:21 am

I know this thread is for seeds but couldn't find a thread for cuttings

Does anyone have any Comfrey Cuttings they are willing to trade for some seeds?

Comfrey and Snow!

Post  littlejo on 1/3/2018, 2:56 pm

I would be happy to send some comfrey (roots of this are best to send) but, I will have to wait til it quits snowing! Yes, its snowing in the Charleston area.
My comfrey was still green and growing yesterday. It does well in frost. I cut leaves and put around plants that may need a little boost, and it makes a very good compost ingredient.
It's supposed to be in the 60's next week, so maybe then.

Wow, that would be great, Let me know about some type of reimbursement and it's No rush, I guess I can put it under my grow lights till spring. Do you know what cultivar it is. I'm a little nervous bringing in a True Comfrey.

I'm not sure of the name, I used to have both but 1 died off. This 1 blooms a lot, but does not propagate by setting seeds, etc. More plants may grow form the roots, but you can always give them away!
1 note: comfrey does not do too good in SFG because it sends it's roots deep to collect nutrients for the leaves(fertilizer)

Thank-you. This is not for a SFG these will be planted ground level around my yard. I have 4 spots that I want to fill in with something and figured comfrey would be perfect.

The comfrey has a pretty blue flower.
Will check on the confrey , my strawberries, and other winter growers as soon as the snow melts, maybe Monday.
