Comfrey, Russian (Symphytum uplandicum)

Comfrey, Russian – Symphytum uplandicum

Comfrey, Russian – Symphytum uplandicum is a vigorous hardy perennial. It has green lance shaped leaves and purple-pink flowers in summer that bees love.

Comfrey prefers a moist soil in full sun or semi shade. A vigorous grower, allow lots of room for it to grow in the garden.

It is mainly known for its use as a nutritious stock feed and as a highly effective plant food.

As comfrey has very deep roots it can extract nutrients from far below the soil’s surface. The leaves then store these nutrients. Comfrey feed is a wonderful tomato feed due to the high potassium content.

Harvest leaves from early summer to Autumn to make a liquid plant feed. Click here for an easy guide from Gardener’s World on how to do this.
