Is comfrey one of the fastest growing plants ? I cut mine level with the ground every 3 weeks and 3 weeks later it’s ready for cutting again. And it has so many uses - I made a poultice out of it today much to my son’s amusemant.




I suppose it is, like you I cut mine back so many times through into autumn and it just keeps on coming, certain clumps I leave to go to flower as the bees just love them.
