Comfrey (also known as comphrey) is a native herb in Britain and has long been known as a medicinal herb, and it was cultivated by the Greeks and Romans for its powerful properties. It has a myriad of uses, and Comfrey is one of the most useful plants you can grow in your garden.

Comfrey or Symphytum officinale makes a wonderful natural fertilizer and compost activator when steeped in water, can be grown as an animal feedstuff, and poultices of the leaves can be applied externally to ease bruising and sprains.

It is important to note that Comfrey is not to be taken internally as it could cause liver damage.

This hardy perennial grows 60cm - 1.2m, and will flourish in almost any soil type and situation, and as it is such a vigorous plant, it needs very little encouragement to grow well. The bell-shaped flowers which appear in spring and summer, are a pinky-mauve colour and will attract bees to your garden.
