Comfrey

Symphytum officinale


  • Perennial herb
  • Improves soil


Perennial herb with clump forming habit.  Plants have large dark green, hairy, ovate leaves and produce upright stems with white to pink bell-like flowers.  Plants grow to 120cm tall by 60cm wide.  Very fast growing.

Comfrey is often used to improve soil quality.  Plants have deep roots which bring up nutrients from deep in the soil and make them available to other shallow rooted plants.  Leaves a can be used to make a liquid fertiliser.  Leaves are a fantastic compost activator.  Comfrey is also a popular companion plant.   

Also known as Comphrey, Knitbone, Common Comfrey, and English Comfrey.
