Default Comfrey - Symphytum Officinale.

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?


Check out this page: http://www.permaculture.org.uk/mm.asp?mmfile=discussion
it lists all the forums and mailing lists about permaculture specially
those in the uk.
