- Root crowns of Bocking 14 comfrey (Symphytum officinale x uplandicum)
- Instructions URL (document on the web)
🌱 PLANT INFO:
Crowns establish more quickly than root cuttings would. Comfrey has many uses and is a popular permaculture plant. Medicinal, chop-and-drop mulch, liquid fertilizer, etc
The Bocking 14 variety sets sterile seed so it will not spread by seed. However it still spreads as a clump by root and site selection should be done carefully because once planted, it is very hard to rid of.

No. Rooting cuttings is generally only for experienced growers with ideal conditions. I do not recommend it for beginners

So excited I purchased with crowns. The first time I tried to grow comfrey (from another seller) they all rotted. This time I have little shoots (with your help). Thank you
