Hi all

I was wondering of there is anyone in the Dublin area that has comfrey plants to buy or divide?

It's not for me as I live in Inishowen, but a bloke contacted me earlier asking.

If you have any or know of any for sale, could you let me know please and I will pass their e-mail address to you....

Cheers

Ian

Hi there. I hope its what you're looking for but I just bought some type of comfrey on Ebay from a guy in the UK called Boxtree Bill. I have bought from him in the past and I always get excellent plants (a bit small but they always grow like they're on steroids), and the plants are well packed and have always survived postage to me down in Kerry. Good luck

I've been reading a blog that describes the benefits of comfrey for making a tea to fertilize plants. Here's a vendor that sells the seeds which may be cheaper than live plants on ebay. http://www.richters.com/Web_store/web_store.cgi?product=X1870&show=&prodclass=F003&cart_id=1488058.26805
Some varieties can be invasive and develop large roots - so probably a good spot would be to plant close to the compost bin or the worm bin if you have one.
