    Default wanted comfrey seeds please

    I keep on reading about comfrey as a fertilizer, and how good it is.
    If anyone has a spare couple of seeds, I would really appreciate it.

    And I will try and accommodate what you need in return, as I can't find these in any garden center

    Thanks for your time!

    Best wishes

    Ditto - give it another 6 weeks and there will be people who could dig you up a root and send it on.

    I have a few options, and if I don't I am sure I can push the boat out for you

    As mentioned, it's the Bocking 14 (sterile) variety you want. I got mine from eBay. From that original root cutting, I now have about 60 plants
