This may seem a very odd request but does anyone have a piece of the type of comfrey used to make comfrey tea. I got blank looks at a local garden centre.



comfrey is Symphytum. i have a smallish one with pinky white flowers I can send you some. send me pm with your address.

I have plants too but wild comfrey. Let me know if you'd like some. I checked its uses out as I only ever used for making fertilizer and it smells disgusting but came across this. Very interesting.

You can use it to make a poultice for sprains etc too.
