- Instructions URL (document on the web)

Comfrey is a hardy perennial deep rooted plant useful in making fertilizer tea, building soil with mulch, livestock fodder, medicine and more. Useful also as a living mulch to out compete and shade out weeds. Bocking 14 variety produces larger leaves and sets sterile seeds so it won't be spread where you don't want it.
Root cuttings can be slow to get going so expect several weeks before signs of life

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

These arrived so quickly and were packed in plastic bags with soil… very nice packaging. I took them out right away and over half of them already had little root hairs and buds forming. I will certainly order from them again !

nice healthy roots already sprouting. I'll buy from this shop again.

Dan is an amazing guy and so incredibly helpful. He went above and beyond, insuring I received my purchase. This is my third purchase from him and this shop is now my first stop for hard to find plants. Thank you Dan for everything!

The item was just as listed and in excellent condition. I planted them around my apple tree. Comfrey is excellent for fruit trees. I'm going to order more for one more tree we bought yesterday. Thank you.
