Re: source for comfrey seeds?
Cuttings seem a bit odd but in any case it is *very* easy to grow comfrey
from pieces of roots. You can divide a big plant into many small ones in
the winter or spring. Growing them from seed is an option but takes a lot
longer. I'd try to find someone who has comfrey plants and ask for some
roots, plant those in rich ground and divide the plants further in the next
year and the next and the next........
It's a wonderful plant, alright. I recycle chicken dung onto their ground
during the winter and have huge plants all summer which I cut 2-3 times for
mulch and comfrey water and also give young shoots to our goats.
