Information

A dynamic accumulator, comfrey is rich in vital growing nutrients of Potassium, Nitrogen and Phosphorous. Potassium is particularly key to growing flowers and fruiting vegetables such as aubergines and tomatoes.


Bocking 14, a cultivar of Russian Comfrey has a higher nutrient content than wild comfrey, and its leaves can be cut several times in a season. Comfrey leaves can be used to create a powerful liquid fertiliser or as a trench fertiliser or a nutritious mulch.

These cuttings come as a small section of root (6-8 cm) which quickly establish as plants.

How to Use

How to grow:

Choose a sunny site or with partial shade. In an 8cm planting hole, place the root horizontally, cover with soil and water well. Allow 75 cm between plants. Allow to grow the first year, the following year you can start to cut leaves periodically throughout the season.

How to use:

As a trench fertiliser – line your planting pit or trench with 2.5cm – 5cm layer of comfrey leaves and cover with a thin layer of soil. Plant your crop (potatoes/tubers/beans) and fill the trench. The nutrients are released as the leaves decay and will provide a season-long feed improving growth.


As a mulch – put a 5cm layer of comfrey around any plant.
Comfrey Tea – First make a concentrate. Put comfrey leaves in a container with holes in the base. Put a weight on top and collect the black juice in a second container. When you are ready to use, add 10 parts water to 1 part comfrey juice.
