- Root crowns of Bocking 14 comfrey (Symphytum officinale x uplandicum)
- Instructions URL (document on the web)

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.

Frequently Asked Questions

What if a plant arrives non-viable or damaged in shipping?

Unfortunately sometimes shipping is not kind to plants but don't worry, just notify me within 48hr of delivery and I can send replacements to you

Can I pick up my order locally?

Yes you can pick up locally (off of Todd Rd south of Santa Rosa). Send me a message to coordinate the pick up and I will refund any shipping costs

Sizing details

I do my best to provide material that matches listing photos but because plants naturally vary, I do not guarantee size of cuttings/tuber/etc

Can you delay shipping my order until X date?

No, sorry. Because of the complexity it adds to my workflow, I cannot delay orders. Please place your order when you are ready for it to be sent

I'm a beginner; should I order cuttings?

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

slowing waking up wish its bigger roots...

Everything went smoothly, and my Comfrey roots are already getting huge!

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

This seller is very kind and giving--I will be sure to buy from him again.
