If there was one plant I would grow more of, it would be comfrey. In this video I tell you how comfrey is grown and also demonstrate how to use comfrey as a liquid feed and a mulch.

    Great video, as always. Question for you, I have started a food forest and have 8 fruit trees which I want to put comfrey around. How far from the base of the trees should it be planted and is there a preferred directional orientation? Thanks for all the effort and info you put into your videos.

    Comfrey is amazing! Watch out when taking root cuttings though.. Even dropping a tiny piece of root the size of your pinky finger nail can sprout a plant in unwanted places. LOVE your videos.

    Do not plant comfrey you will never get rid of it

    EXCELLENT video, Huw. I keep Comfrey close to every veggie bed I have. Make it easy to use as a mulch or tea. I make sure I freeze 1/2 cup portions that I have put in my food processor. I then use as a poultice throughout the year. I also make an Comfrey oil infusion. Thank you for inspiring others to grow Comfrey.

    I looked and looked for comfrey here in Mumbai for 2 years and finally gave up. It could be available in the cooler states of India.

    I have been using it for the first time this year. My question is how it breaks down on nitrogen potassium and pot ash. Like a 7-7-7 or what? Great video!!

    Those are nice tomato plants….and you have quite a harvest there… I think tomato roots are shallow..is that right and they spread far… Which means that top soil is dry…or not.

    I did not know about this. Thank you! What should one use if they do not have nettles?

  • TheKrsrocks 10 months ago

    Another great video my friend 🙂 I'll look into growing comfrey sometime. Also, what should I do about my clay, dense soil?? It grows veg in it but it isn't the way I'd like it to be.

    We use comfrey to feed all our plants. Great video Huw. For those not wanting it to spread bocking 14 will be the best variety as it in infertile and can only be cultivated by root division.
