Planting Comfrey

Not having any comfrey here at the new farm we mail ordered some last week. One kg of roots arrived in the post so today we planted it. Comfrey is fantastic stuff for composting or feeding to stock. It easily grows from sections of root and you can split it up each Spring to increase your harvest.

While we decide where to put it, we’ve planted it in these tubs. It’s mobile and hopefully in these, the chickens won’t be able to get to it so easily. They love comfrey and will happily destroy the plant to get at a few leaves.
