Marsh Creek Farmstead: Permaculture Innercircle Elite

Permaculture Innercircle Elite

Bocking 14 Cultivar

At  Marsh Creek Farmstead we are growing the Bocking 14 variety of Russian Comfrey. This sterile variety of comfrey grows very well in our USDA zone 9 Mediterranean climate. Comfrey has been used for thousands of years as a medicinal herb as well as a fertility builder for the land. You will receive a minimum of 30 individual 1" to 2" long pieces in each order. 

Your order will contain 35+ pieces like this

  • Non-invasive Bocking-14 form of comfrey, which will not produce viable seed.
  • Bocking-14 comfrey is the most desirable cultivar for making a tea to fertilize your garden with an NPK ratio 1.8 / 0.5 /5.3. Comfrey is a dynamic accumulator of nutrients, most notably iron, silicon, nitrogen, potassium, calcium, magnesium and many trace minerals.
  • Save money on animal feed! Comfrey is used worldwide as an animal fodder. Dried comfrey leaves contain 26% protein. Although some animals enjoy comfrey fresh, if you find your animals do not like fresh comfrey, offer them comfrey which has wilted for a day or dried completely. Comfrey is the only plant which harvests vitamin B-12 from the soil!
  • Use comfrey leaves to turbo-charge your compost pile, especially piles made predominately made from carbon heavy "browns" like dry leaves, straw, brush, wood chips or shavings, etc.
