SPRING ROOTS

Spring is the best season for planting live roots of Russian hybrid comfrey (Symphytum x uplandicum) and/or true comfrey (Symphytum officinalis). We consider comfrey to be the queen of all medicinal herbs. Not only are we enamored with the cell-proliferating activity of alantoin, but we also use the plant in veterinary medicine, as well as making a tea of the leaves to spray on our potted plants in the nursery. The large, bright green plants are full of life and bedeck our gardens with handsome clumps if turgid leaves and scorpioid spirals of comely purple flowers. We welcome you to click on the pictures below to find out more about how to plant comfrey cuttings, as well as a few other good herbs that make edible/medicinal roots and are best planted in the spring garden. These plants are all very robust and respond quickly. They give everyone a green thumb!
