We'll be digging and shipping Comfrey roots throughout the winter and spring. We cultivate fields of True Comfrey (Symphytum officinalis) and Russian Comfrey (Symphytum x uplandicum bocking 14). We are able to supply nicely sized-up organically certified crown cuttings to growers throughout the US. The best times to plant comfrey crown cuttings are: spring and fall. However, there is demand year-round and we are happy to oblige. Growers in the South may need their roots in February, and indoor growers will be able to use these sturdy cuttings at any season. If your ground is frozen and you want to plant the cutting to a pot, this will work fine. As always, the cutting should be completely buried in the soil, with the crown at least an inch below the surface. If the cutting has pushed out green growth in transit, then cut this back before planting. If planting to pots, put one cutting in each 1-gal pot.Story: One time I had some comfrey roots in my hand and didn't know what to do with them. I passed by a 4-foot tall chimney tile that was left over from a project. It was set on the dirt. I dropped the roots in there and forgot about it. 3 weeks later, a large, dogtongue-shaped comfrey leaf appeared, lolling out the top of the tile. Comfrey. It grows.
