At Marsh Creek Farmstead we are currently growing the Bocking 14 variety of Russian Comfrey. This sterile variety of comfrey grows very well in our USDA zone 9 Mediterranean climate. Comfrey has been used for thousands of years as a medicinal herb as well as a fertility builder for the land. I am currently selling bocking 14 root cuttings 1" long pieces.
Non-invasive Bocking-14 form of comfrey, which will not produce viable seed.
Bocking-14 comfrey is the most desirable cultivar for making a tea to fertilize your garden with an NPK ratio 1.8 / 0.5 /5.3. Comfrey is a dynamic accumulator of nutrients, most notably iron, silicon, nitrogen, potassium, calcium, magnesium and many trace minerals.
Save money on animal feed! Comfrey is used worldwide as an animal fodder. Dried comfrey leaves contain 26% protein. Although some animals enjoy comfrey fresh, if you find your animals do not like fresh comfrey, offer them comfrey which has wilted for a day or dried completely. The little silicon "hairs" on the leaves sometimes bother animals, though the problem is solved by allowing the leaves to wilt first. Comfrey is the only plant which harvests vitamin B-12 from the soil!
Use comfrey leaves to turbo-charge your compost pile, especially piles made predominately made from carbon heavy "browns" like dry leaves, straw, brush, wood chips or shavings, etc.
Ordered 25 they sent 27. All have sprouted within 3 weeks. Could actually make about 36 cuttings from what they sent and what sprouted.

The Comfrey was shipped quickly and is good quality. I admit I didn’t plant right away, a week later but because they put moist wood shavings in with the root cuttings they stayed alive and they are growing well now they are planted! Thanks! I’ll be ordering again from y’all again.

Roots came healthy and one is already sprouting after a few days! I can’t wait to plant them around the garden and compost
