Default Comfrey - Symphytum Officinale.

In article ,
says...

Hi. I am a newcomer to the UK and am trying to establish a vegetable
garden. Comfrey was a vital part of my garden back home but not even
herb specialists seem to stock it here. Is that because it does not
grow particularly well in the UK or is it superseeded by an even better
local plant used for green tea feeds?

It *can* be found. I found seed seller stocking it a local agricultural
show. I had to ask, though, it wasn't on display. Have you tried
Googling for it?
