Comfrey is incredible. It's a soil builder, a fertilizer, a compost enhancer, has medicinal properties, is a good feed source for animals, and much more. Let's talk about this chief of plants.

An interesting article on comfrey. I live in the south-east of England and it grows abundantly under my Victoria plum tree which always has tons of fruit. Could try harvesting it and making a tea fertiliser. Also thinking now of transplanting some under the apple and pear trees. Thanks for the info. Thank You! http://garden.org/i/s/thankyou.gif
