COMFREY (Symphytum officinalis). An ancient medicinal, it also creates a wonderful green tea for your other plants. The fuzzy flop eared plant produces pretty pink/blue flowers. You can cut and this plant comes back - which is good because the leaves and flowers are the portion that you will use for manure tea to side-dress vegetables in your garden. Never cut more than a third of any one plant, however, so that is why it is nice to establish a patch. Mine grows right next to my compost pile - a symbiotic relationship. This variety grows from seed unlike some varieties, but not recommended for beginners. Grows 24-36". 5 seeds.

MEDICINAL: Not recommended for internal use, despite its frequent appearance in supplements. Consumer Reports recent added comfrey supplements to their "Dirty Dozen" list of dangerous dietary supplements. But external is another matter. The plant contains alantoin, a skin healer. I can attest to its powers. A few months ago one of my kitties came home with a ghastly injury on its lower back - an open gaping wound the size of a quarter that had already started to ooze. I pulled one of my comfrey plants and scrubbed down its roots and then made a sterilized (in the microwave) tincture of roots and leaves, applying this to the wound for about a week. Any vet will tell you how difficult such a wound is to heal and that they have a tendency to abcess, yet this one healed beautifully and the fur grew back over it perfectly. This is one grateful kitty. You can also grind the leaves and make a plaster that hardens - hence the nickname for the plant "boneset."
