I have acquired an allotment. I have basic knowledge and love herbs but would like to know if comfrey is the best green manure and do you dig it up and straight into the earth and when. Thank you.
I would like to know what causes comfrey plants to die. My plant started to dry out and when I checked beneath the soil level, I saw white spots around the plant. Will the plant regrow again? I look forward to your response and thank you.
Your plant may still have enough root system to survive.
Treat the plant and surrounding area of soil with Neem Oil. Neem Oil works as both an insecticide and fungicide.
Here are some links for you.
I only know Boneset, which I believe to be the plant comfrey......used in the belief that it would help bones heal.
There is another plant commonly called "boneset":
Eupatorium perfoliatum, Indian sage, agueweed, thoroughwort
Comfrey is sometimes referred to as boneset, but less often.
This is in my brother's front yard, it's shady, has purple flowers and I'd say rather overgrown
This is Symphytum officinale, or Comfrey. here is an article that will help:
Can Comfrey be grown in pots in home? I would like to keep this around in the kitchen for cuts and abrasions. Is this possible?
This plant can be, highly, invasive. Growing them in container is a perfect way to control the spreading habit.
Put them in a south facing window, or install a small horticultural lamp above them to keep them happy. Be mindful of watering, and let the soil dry out down to about halfway, thoroughly, between waterings. Snip and use, constantly, for the best growth.
Here is an article that will explain the needs of this plant:
Hello from Greece and Congratulations for the best ever gardening website. During repot of this beautiful comfrey plant i noticed some of the roots brown. Some people say it is the browning of the soil that made the roots look brown like that but i am very worried that this could be root rot.
It is common for roots to get stained. I wouldn't worry too much. If you are still concerned, you could give it a dusting of wettable sulfur.
Where you would be worried, would be if the roots were soft and squishy. This could indicate rot. Otherwise, everything looks pretty healthy, to me!
