Propagating Comfrey

Thursday, March 31st, 2016

My Comfrey has grown two seasons now. Last season it was huge and its time to propagate it. The front yard where I want to graze the cows has struggled to grow much of anything. The soil is heavy with clay and appears low in organic matter. My goal is to build soil here and grow forage so that the cows can graze periodically here. So this is a great place to set up a comfrey patch where the cow will be able to graze once its established.


This is a single plant dug out of the garden.


I cut small “chunks” of root but also some with the sprouting plants like this.
