It looks a bit brighter than the comfrey I have but the shape looks right. I keep it for bees and the foul-smelling feed too.

THANKS everyone...but you said the magic word "BEE'S" and there are two more plants to the right of this pic, plus especially when most of my boarder & garden is still in green foliage, so its a welcome change of colour ;) thanks again.

comfrey is good to dig into the veg bed at the begining of the season to add to the nutruents. your lucky to have it. I havent got any, cant seem to find any. Does it set seed? hint, hint
