Comfrey has very deep roots that transport nutrients from the soil to the leaves, making them rich in nitrogen, potassium and phosphorus. So the comfrey leaves are very good for making homegrown fertilizer.

Caring for Comfrey

    Mature comfrey plants can be cut several times each season, prompting some to plant comfrey patches in proximity to compost heaps to take full advantage of comfreys use as an excellent compost activator.

    Adding leaves of the comfrey plant to a compost heap gives the compost added nitrogen, resulting in increased microbial decomposition of the compost.

    The addition of too much comfrey will result in an imbalance in the carbon: nitrogen of the compost, and can actually slow the decomposition rate.
