perfect for pollinators

To be honest we are not 100% sure if this is the name of this variety of Comfrey but after some reading, it best describes the plant that we were given - the person who gave it to us did not know the variety either!

We call it a dwarf comfrey and as its name suggests, it will creep through the areas where you plant it. We use it under fruit trees and also as a ground cover in some of our bigger spaces in the garden that need filling as the bees just cant get enough of it and for us that is reason enough.  We find it does not spread rampantly and we have found that it is not as deep rooted as our big Comfrey and we find we can easily dig it out if we want to move it and no new bits seem to sprout and if they do they appear to be easily removed and relocated or we use it in our Comfrey tea that we make with sheep manure and use on our garden plants.

We also have the big leaved Symphytum variety which you can find here

  • Plant orders will only be dispatched on Monday's and Tuesday's this will ensure that your order is not held in a depot over the weekend
  • All parcels are set at "Authority to leave" which means if you're not home at the time of delivery the courier will leave your parcel in a safe place on your property
  • Most Aramex deliveries are a two-day service with the exception of rural delivery which may add up to two days.
  • If you are wanting more than twelve plants, get in contact with us for a quote for freight
  • Corten steel garden stakes are considered over size for rural delivery so these can be sent but you will need to collect these from your local depot 

All rates detailed are for parcels up to 15kgs

Please note that on occasion Aramex may deem an area to be rural where other companies may not, this unfortunately is outside of our control as Aramex are the preferred courier for live plants, as other couriers will not transport them. Where this occurs we will need to get in touch to get you to deposit the additional rural fee
