Product Description & Reviews
Growing Bocking 14 Russian Comfrey At Marsh Creek Farmstead has become a mainstay of our farming business. We grow the Bocking #14 variety of Russian Comfrey as well as the Bocking #4 and True Varieties. The #14 is a sterile variety(does not spread by seed) of comfrey that grows very well in USDA zones 2 through 9b. Comfrey has been used for thousands of years as a medicinal herb as well as a fertility builder for the land. Start Comfrey indoors in pots and keep indoors until spring. After winter passes and the ground can be worked move the comfrey outdoors and plant in the ground. Each order contains more than 12 pieces or viable root. I always throw in a few extra cuttings! Bocking-14 comfrey is the most desirable cultivar for making a tea to fertilize your garden with an NPK ratio 1.8 / 0.5 /5.3. Comfrey is a dynamic accumulator of nutrients, most notably iron, silicon, nitrogen, potassium, calcium, magnesium and many trace minerals. You can also save money on animal feed! Comfrey is used worldwide as an animal fodder. Dried comfrey leaves contain 26% protein. Although some animals enjoy comfrey fresh, if you find your animals do not like fresh comfrey, offer them comfrey which has wilted for a day or dried completely. The little silicon "hairs" on the leaves sometimes bother animals, though the problem is solved by allowing the leaves to wilt first. Comfrey is the only plant which harvests vitamin B-12 from the soil! Use comfrey leaves to turbo-charge your compost pile, especially piles made predominately made from carbon heavy "browns" like dry leaves, straw, brush, wood chips or shavings, etc. Shipping All amazon orders are shipped USPS First Class Mail on the next shipping day.
