Just received a pack of comfrey root in the post from Koanaga and will pot it up this weekend. I was thinking of cutting up the pieces so they are about 1cm long each. Does that sound big enough for the pieces to all grow?
Yes, My Comfrey came cut up to one centermeter peices from Koanga Gardens years ago and it grow well!
Great thanks Shona. Maybe I will try even smaller - I want heaps of plants. Not that im greedy mind ;)
They say once you plant it you will always have it so becareful where you put it and it will be very easy to grow more of it! I need to get some too as I've just moved and I had to leave it behind, just hope the lady who bought my last house is an organic gardener or she won't apressiate the large comfrey patch I have in the middle of the back yard garden bank.
Hey Shona, yes I'm well aware of that one. Its just so useful as a nutrient miner that I want it all around my budding food forest.
Yes it certanly is the wonder weed of the organic garden!
