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 mixed +/- 1" long pieces in sets of 12
Plant indoors in pots and keep indoors until spring. After winter passes and the ground can be worked move the comfrey outdoors and plant in the ground.
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.

I got these super fast. I had to wait a day to plant them because it was snowing when they were delivered. I received 20 root cuttings, hopefully some of them take. :) will update when everything starts coming up.
