comfrey : LUSENET : Freedom! self reliance : One Thread

Hi all ,well I've been looking for some comfrey plants or roots in my area, Northwest Florida. No one around this area seems to know what I am talking about. Any of you folks have some roots or cuttings you would sell me. I really want to get some. From what I've read it is a good feed for chickens and goats. Thanks in advance,Daryll

Hi Cindy, I sent you my snail mail address,thank you so much. Bye the way any of you guys want some stevia plant cuttings let me know I should have an excess in about three weeks,people in this area just don't want to try anything new. Daryll

I'd like to try some of both! How's that for greedy? I have some heirloom basil seeds that are great, and some iffy armenian cuke seeds. Some germinated and some didn't. My mom's (which I gave her) all germinated just fine and mine just sat there and did nada. But I would be happy to share those as well. Let me know if anyone wants either of these, but use my real email!

Comfrey is also an almost complete food for rabbits!!

So that D doesn't run out of starts, Parks, Pinetree and Bountiful Gardens all sell the seed....

Nichols sells the roots

Jerome Belanger's book "Raising the Homestead Hog" has a whole chapter on comfrey.
