Hello to my amazing readers!
As we all know comfrey is an amazing plant. It has medicinal value, draws pollinators, mines up minerals from the sub soil, and provides those back to us in the form of free fertilizer. I have even learned it can be liquified on a blender and is almost instantly bio available.
A plant this handy should be found in abundance. Really there is no excuse for it not to be.
This is the first time I have ever split comfrey, or any root propagated plant for that matter. I know it’s hard to believe.
The internet says it’s easy so let’s give it a whack. I’ve got the plant all picked out. I picked this one because it’s kind of being a nuisance near the gate. Also because it is one of my older plants, it should be more established.
With comfrey I wear gloves, it has a tendency to make you itch.
The next step takes us to the greenhouse where these will be starting their new life. The roots get washed and split into smaller plants. I’m guessing I have about twenty now.
When all is sorted out I now have twenty four new comfrey plants. A couple I am trying from just root stock to see what happens.
I guess now we simply wait.
Until next time…
