Comfrey, this spring can you send me a piece of comfrey with some root attached?
I'd PM you my address and pay postage of course.
I remember when you offered last year but I thought I could get it from a guy who worked at the health store. Never did though.
I think you're my only hope since the FDA has made the sale of comfrey illegal. At least it is here. ARGH !

Ok Deborah...Pm me your address and in the spring when it starts coming back up I'll send you some, you might also want to remind me I sometimes seem to be forgetful, the postage isn't very much, so don't worry about that.

Well its up to you, but I ran across that site and thought you might be interested in looking at it. I don't mind to send you some in the spring.

Was curious if you might share why the sale of fresh comfrey is illegal in Califorina? I use the leaves to lay over bruises and sprains, mix it with water for an organic fertilizer, lay it on garden soil so it leaches nutrients and add it to compost piles. I can't imagine not having my comfrey patch or not being able to start a new one.

I read that comfrey beds will live 20-25 years and are hard to eradicate where planted so sounds like if you are able to locate a source it will be around for a while.

I'm not really positive that the sale of comfrey is actually illegal-but I do know that all local retailers refuse to stock it.
I should have checked my facts before I posted. shocked
There are nurseries online based in California who do sell comfrey.
The FDA's warnings have influenced the buyers.
Comfrey can be toxic.
(But, cigarettes are legal?????)
