Item out of Stock   |   Usually dispatched within 24 hours
  • Characteristics: A hairy, clump-forming herbaceous perennial with clusters of pink-purple bell-shaped flowers. Supplied in 8cm pot.
  • Growth and Spread: Ultimate height and spread of 0.5 - 1m.
  • Care and Maintenance: Comfrey demands little to no maintenance and is very easy to care for. It likes to be in soil that is moist but not waterlogged. A sunny or partially shaded spot is preferred, but Comfrey is quite robust and will grow adequately in most settings. Cut back after flowering to maintain a healthy size and shape.
  • Period of Interest: Foliage emerges in spring and flowers appear from May to July. The plant dies back below ground level towards the end of autumn but reappears the following spring.
  • Top Tip: Comfrey can last for 20 years or more so make sure you choose your planting site carefully.

Long vivid green leaves and clusters of purple-pink tubular flowers make Comfrey a welcome addition to flower beds and borders. This is a great way to fill gaps, especially between rose bushes. Comfrey also grows well in pots and containers.

Known as the Healing Herb, Comfrey is popular in herbalism. It's historically been used topically on sprains, bruises, minor cuts and scratches. It's not suitable for human consumption and should not be ingested.

Comfrey also has many uses in the garden. Leaves can be regularly harvested and added to your compost as an activator to speed up the process. They can also be made into a nutritious and effective plant feed, suitable for use on fruit and veg crops as well as flowers and other plants.

If you have a damp area of the garden, Comfrey is ideal for adding interest and colour. It loves moist ground and is perfect for spots near rivers, streams or ponds. Pollinators find Comfrey irresistible, and you’ll find it attracts lots of bees and butterflies to the garden.
