Does anyone have bocking #4 comfrey they'd be willing to trade?
I have Celeste fig cuttings available to trade.

Is that some cultivar adapted to the north florida climate?

RE: Wanted: Comfrey

no, from what i've read it will grow in any part of the US.

i'm looking for bocking #4 because it is more suitable for chicken feed as well as a good plant fertilizer. chickens don't seem to eat other types of comfrey.

Right.

I think Mollison mentions it in his permaculture book.

Joeworm, did you manage to get Bocking #4? If so, did you get them from a member of this site (in exchange) or did you manage to find some in a nursery?
thanks.

I am looking for comfrey also. I found the coescomfrey, but he only sells 10 crowns and it is too much for me. If anybody wants to order with me so we can share Please let me know, may be we can work something out.

Apparently the student gardeners at UNF are looking for it, too. See Craigslist link below.

Carol in Jacksonville

No I never received any offers for the comfrey, still waiting. As previously mentioned, Coe's has it but I was looking for a trade to save money.
