Hi Fiona - I'm not sure if I understand your plan properly, but it may not be wise to plant comfrey somewhere where you don't want it permanently. It grows from the smallest root left in the ground (and they go down deep). I have permanent areas of comfrey, and when I'm planting potatoes I cut the leaves off the comfrey and lay them in the planting area.

Thanks for the suggestion Roxy. Unfortunately I recently ordered some ordinary garlic & egyption tree onions from Kaiwaka and was disappointed with what they sent - undersized, and many cloves soft and/or 'empty'. I emailed asking to return them, and have no reply. I'm not sure if Kaiwaka source directly from Koanga - seems there has been a change in people and a change in quality? So, trying private sources - people who grow themselves perhaps.



Hi Jude, did you find some elephant garlic? you can try '" they had some last time i looked :)

Hi Tara, whereabouts are you in south Auckland?  We are in West Auckland.  How many plants do you think you could provide, we want to plant comfrey prior to putting in a potato crop in a largish area?

Comment by Tara McFarlane on April 24, 2012 at 9:37pm

I also have some Fiona, as long as you're prepared to dig some up.


I'm in the extreme south of Auckland

I do Fiona! Where are you based? I am just about to sign off for the night but PM me your details and I can send you seeds or plants?

Hi, does anyone have comfrey plants or seeds to swap for honey.? Alternatively do you know where we can buy a quantity of plants?

Yea, Kaiwaka Organics are better than Koanga, they are around the same price, and they dont require you to be a subscribing member in order to purchase seeds etc. Funny thing is, alot of their stuff is sourced from Koanga too, since Kaiwaka is on the former Koanga site :)
