Comfrey 'Hidcote Blue'(Symphytum 'Hidcote Blue')Herb in 1 Litre Pot

'Hidcote Blue' Comfrey (also known as comphrey) is a native herb in Britain. It has a myriad of uses, and Comfrey is one of the most useful plants you can grow in your garden.  The purplish-pink buds which appear in spring and summer, open to bell-shaped flowers which are an electric blue colour. This variety is not as tall as some of the others and is useful as ground-cover between shrubs, making a weed-proof cluster of rough-textured green leaves, Height and spread approx 50 cm. This hardy perennial 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. To encourage a second flush of flowers and rejuvenate the foliage, prune the plants hard to the ground after flowering and feed with a liquid feed. They are adored by bees and butterflies so they are great plants if you make honey or want to have lots of wildlife in your garden.

Herb Usage

Comfrey has long been known as a medicinal herb, and it was cultivated by the Greeks and Romans for its powerful properties. Comfrey was historically used to treat a wide variety of ailments ranging from bronchial problems, broken bones, sprains, arthritis, gastric and varicose ulcers, severe burns, acne and other skin conditions. Today Comfrey is almost solely grown for its ornamental properties and for its use as a wonderful natural fertilizer and compost activator when steeped in water it is a must have for the organic gardener. 

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