Hey Jaxxs

How did you use the comfrey? In a tea, salve, whole leaf?

I use the root for poultices during times of injury to bones ligaments and tendons, and I use the leaf for soap, salves and infusions. I don't enjoy the taste but drinking the leaf infusion after the third day of root poultice application for a small tear in the shoulder was the kicker to get me moving and forgetting I even had an injury that nagged me for more than two weeks. I would like to eventually have some growing here. My mom is 80 and has allowed me to relandscape a portion of her yard right outside her door so that we may play in the garden together with our friends the plants. I also am looking into growing the st johns and the elderberry. I am enamored with motherwort as well.

I have comfrey, don't use it much, I do eat it in a salad from time to time.
Comfrey is a plant you are must really want to have, once you have it it will be there and it will spread. There are some varieties that have been bread to not produce seed, however it will spread by root propagation. for this I would grow it in a tub of some sort, that will contain it.
