Symphytum Bocking 14 root cuttings (x 10, sent spring)
Quaker comfrey, Russian comfrey. A vigorous hybrid perennial, growing up to 1 m (3 ft) high. Young leaves and flowers are edible in salads and roots can be used to make a coffee; all parts, like other comfreys, have medicinal properties. An excellent bee plant and ground cover, also a butterfly plant. Comfrey is an excellent mineral accumulator, its deep roots raising potassium in particular from the subsoil. ‘Bocking 14’ is a vigorous clone which is sterile, so it won’t seed all over your garden. Root cuttings are usually sent out during March. 10 root cuttings.
