Comfrey Bucket

Comfrey Bucket (Symphytum officinale)

Pack a tub with leaves, weigh down with a brick, let the leaves liquify for a week or two, strain off your free fertiliser. Use on potatoes, tomatoes, tomatillo's, aubergines, runner beans etc. In trials potatoes cropped better with comfrey than with conventional fertilisers or manure.
