I figured I would share a few videos with you about comfrey to help answer some questions that have come in since I did my episode on Comfrey. These are all from the most recent workshop. If you like these consider coming to our Food Forest Extension workshop this fall.
The first one covers the comfrey tractor concept that I have pretty much given up on and also covers stuff other than comfrey. The next two are better videos for those specifically interested in just comfrey but I included this one because it shows the pots the comfrey cuttings you see in the other videos were grown in. The reason I want to move fast with the pot is it had been colonized with fire ants and was absolutely full of them!
The plant in this video was one of the ones from the fire ant pot. Just one of the three.
In the last video I show some other root cutting I got from a similar part earlier in the year and show some of the plants and crowns I bought from Coe’s Comfrey and how I take additional root cuttings from his plants before planting them.
