Russian Comfrey
Bocking 14 Cultivar



At Marsh Creek Farmstead we grow and sell the Bocking 14 variety of Russian Comfrey.
This sterile variety of comfrey grows very well in our USDA zone 9 Mediterranean climate.
Comfrey has been used for thousands of years as a medicinal herb as well as a fertility builder for the land.
You will receive 1" to 2" long pieces in each order.


Your order will contain 30+ pieces like this


We sell the Bocking-14 form of comfrey, which will not produce viable seed.
Bocking-14 comfrey is the most desirable cultivar for making a tea to fertilize your garden with an NPK ratio 1.8 / 0.5 /5.3.
Comfrey is a dynamic accumulator of nutrients, most notably iron, silicon, nitrogen, potassium, calcium, magnesium and many trace minerals.

Save money on animal feed! Comfrey is used worldwide as an animal fodder. Dried comfrey leaves contain 26% protein.
Although some animals enjoy comfrey fresh, if you find your animals do not like fresh comfrey, offer them comfrey which
has wilted for a day or dried completely. The little silicon "hairs" on the leaves sometimes bother animals, though the problem
is solved by allowing the leaves to wilt first. Comfrey is the only plant which harvests vitamin B-12 from the soil!
Use comfrey leaves to turbo-charge your compost pile, especially piles made predominately made from carbon
heavy "browns" like dry leaves, straw, brush, wood chips or shavings, etc.


The image below if from the last time I dug roots to plant cuttings. Look at that naturally braided root!

The cuttings do best if grown in pots indoors or in a greenhouse for 2 to 3 months prior to planting outdoors.

I want to get some comfrey root cuttings. Your video is great, but I don't see a price. I would like to get a small order to start in Florida, but I also plan on taking some of these to Cochabamba, Bolivia, where I am trying out some permaculture in my little garden. I am particularly interested in using this plant for health and healing. So the plan is to start these cuttings at my sons home in Tarpon Springs, FL - leave some for his garden and then hopefully take 3 or 4 home from there in my suitcase after only about a month, so they will be planted in little pots, but not showing any growth yet. I hope they do well in these warmer climates! So what will an order cost plus shipping to florida?

Hi Jonathan :)
I would love some comfrey, but I keep getting 404 errors on your site, if I click through the link in one of your higher posts, or if I put in what you have in a later post, even if I add the www that address is missing. If you are still in business, please update your links, if you are not, I hope you or someone tells us.
Lovely photos, good write up, all the advertising skills in the world do no good if we can't figure out how to buy from you :)

I'll send you some.  How many are you looking for?
