I thought I heard in one of the podcasts that if you transplant anything the taproot is lost. I didn't jot down which podcast. I thought the conversation was trees... But I was curious if this applied to everything. Woody/nonwoody? Does that apply it comfrey too? Comfrey seems to propagate so easily. And establish so quickly in the new place.

I haven't checked to verify that there is indeed a taproot growing from the comfrey I propagated in the method I mentioned but I can't see any reason why there wouldn't be. I think they were referring to trees and the more woody plants.

Eventually you will see new leaves growing out from the base of the stem and it will start to look like a regular comfrey plant. Saves the trouble of digging up comfrey roots.



I recently read this as well. I'm going to try it next spring.
I saw someone using the flowering shoot to root, but I'll have to try just a leaf like you recommend.



I have used the method I described above and it works well.
