When I first started planting comfrey I firmly thought the more the better. Today I suggest just a little moderation.

Comfrey tea of course is much faster acting but takes quite a while for preparation and is notoriously stinky. Would it be possible to purée some comfrey leaves to make a quick application? If so I could really see using comfrey as a foliar application to help out any struggling plants without keeping a bunch of stinky fluid around for weeks.
Thanks in advance,
