Strange how a comfrey plant can give me so much excitement and joy! More so because I've been searching for this plant for a while till I managed to get and transport a couple of roots from a farmer friend in the UK, last autumn. He really must think I'm deeply mad because he considers comfrey as unriddable weeds in his farmland!
Comfrey plant is loved by the chickens too. It is also good as garden composting mulch, or simply soak the leaves in water to produce liquid plant food. Yes, also medicinal for skin cuts, bruises or even knit bones!!
YAY! my comfrey rooted!

These are just some of the plants that grow in the wild, and are useful to have. Instead of foraging them from the wild, we let them grow in our garden because there's extra room for them and it's cleaner for food consumption as it's within your care.
Do you have particular herbal plants that you like which we mostly call as mere weeds?
