Comfrey and October beans

amanda_m(z7 MD)March 13, 2013

I placed an order with Coe's Comfrey (in NC) today for 10 comfrey plants. This will be my first purchase of a dynamic accumulator. I am excited. I will spend the time while waiting for them to come digging the planting holes for them and amending the soil with compost.
This is the non-spreading Russian comfrey, Bocking #4 I believe.

While I was at it I ordered some October beans from the Sustainable Mountain Agriculture Center. They sound like a great old-style cranberry bean.

Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo

I love my non-spreading comfrey! I can't believe how small of a chunk of root will propagate a new plant. And it's really a pretty plant, IMO.
