Hi Everybody
I have been looking all over for comfrey, but haven't found any. Do You know where I can find some in the Malaga area? Or does anyone have any to share/sell?

Thanks in advance!

Most people here are overseas, but you can grow the true comfrey from seeds which you can import.

I put it in the Iberia forum because I hoped that people living in Spain/Portugal would look in here once in a while.

But thank you for the information.

Catalonia here - I bought some seeds from the UK - RealSeeds.co.uk  I think - which have come up fine, and I also got some root cuttings from Balkep - Bulgaria, which took a while to arrive (he has great Perma plants) but have survived the winter and are sprouting nicely now.

HTH

Hi there

Sorry for the brevity of my reply earlier - I was on my phone - hate typing on it.
Balkep are really good - Paul is a nice guy and I have had 3 deliveries from him these last few years.

They take a while to get to me, but all the plants I have received have done pretty well.
All the best

Don't worry - I got the important part 😂
 
It wasn't my idea to go to some crazy nightclub in the middle of nowhere. I just wanted to stay home and cuddle with this tiny ad:
