Something I FORGOT to mention! (OOPS!)

There are different types of Comfrey. (Bocking 14, Bocking 4, Bocking 21…) We use Russian Bocking 14, which is known more for its medicinal properties. The original form of Comfrey (Symphytum Oficinale) is not the main one that is used in gardens these days.  Some comfrey can spread more easily than others (Bocking 4) and some are shared only through propagation (Bocking 14). You can learn more about the various types of comfrey here.
