I am trying to locate Comfrey, I plan to use said plant for the use of organic feed. Any assistance would be welcome and I would be grateful...

I just ordered some comfrey seeds from T&M during the week, and I also got a few cuttings from a friend which havent grown sufficently enough yet to send u some cuttings, will do in the future though if u need some. I really don't know if its common or what here, but i would imagine it is, someone else will probably know Wink

If you can't source it here why not try the Organic Gardening Catalogue - http://www.organiccatalog.com/catalog/product_info.php?cPath=59_154&products_id=1492[url]

That would be great AJ!!!

I could send you Jerusalum Sage seed that I collected in Autumn. A plant with interesting foliage and suttle yellow flower heads. Thrives in fully sun to partial shade.
I will PM you
