Culinary Purposes:

No Known Culinary Purposes

Medical Purposes

The Comfrey Plant (Symphytum officinale) is celebrated for its medicinal properties. It has been used for centuries in traditional medicine to aid in the healing of wounds, bruises, and sprains. Comfrey contains compounds such as allantoin, which promotes cell regeneration and accelerates the healing process. It is also known for its anti-inflammatory and analgesic properties, making it a valuable herb for treating minor injuries and skin conditions.

What to Know About the Plant

The Comfrey Plant is a perennial herb with large, hairy leaves that can range in color from deep green to variegated. Its bell-shaped flowers come in shades of purple, pink, or white, attracting pollinators to the garden. This herb can grow up to 2-3 feet tall and spreads vigorously, making it an excellent ground cover or border plant. When crushed, the leaves emit a mild, earthy scent, adding a pleasant aroma to the garden.

Enhancing Your Fruitscape™

The Comfrey Plant is a versatile addition to your fruitscape design, enhancing both the aesthetic appeal and functionality of your garden. It pairs well with fruit trees such as apple, pear, and cherry, providing a lush backdrop and attracting beneficial insects. Berry plants like raspberries, blackberries, and strawberries thrive alongside Comfrey, creating a vibrant and productive landscape. Tropical plants such as bananas, pineapples, and papayas can also benefit from the nutrient-rich soil created by Comfrey’s deep roots and nutrient accumulation. Additionally, herbs like lavender, thyme, and sage complement the Comfrey Plant, adding fragrance and culinary versatility to your garden space. Whether used as a medicinal herb or a decorative plant, Comfrey adds depth and diversity to your fruitscape, making it a truly enchanting and beneficial addition.

Planting & Care
Fruitscaping with Herbs & Veggies

Every good kitchen garden needs to have an herb section. A walk through a garden planted with herbs is truly a sensual experience. Their beautifully textured leaves invite you to stop and touch them, and then reward you with a delightful array of heavenly scents. Herbs can serve many functions in the edible landscape, creepers like oregano, mints and thyme make great ground cover. Low growers like sage, chives and perennial onions are good for edging flower beds and will help in insect control. Taller evergreens like rosemary are wonderful used as low hedges or for planting around the foundation of houses. Herbs also lend themselves well to being grown in containers. Tuck a few pots close to the kitchen so they’ll be handy when you need them.

Growing your own herbs is well worth the effort. The quality and flavor of fresh picked herbs is so much better than the dried products you find in the grocery store. Our climate makes it possible to grow a very wide range of herbs. The hot humid summer are perfect for herbs like basil, Thai ginger and tea camellias. Try the more Mediterranean herbs like lavender,  sage and Thyme in the winter time, they love the cool and are less apt to succumb to fungus.

Shipping Information

Before Your Plants Arrive: You can find many guides on unpacking, planting, & care, on our growing guides page.

The Journey From Our Nursery to Your Door:  We NEVER ship our plants bare root. Your plant will travel in the very container in which it was nurtured. We thoroughly prune and water them before packing, and make sure they’re well wrapped to retain moisture during transit. It’s as though you’ve personally collected them from our nursery!

Choose Your Ship Date: We understand you’ll want to be available when your plant arrives. Our checkout process features a handy calendar that allows you to choose the Monday on which you want your plant to ship. Depending on your location, you’ll likely receive your plant by Wednesday, Thursday, or Friday of that week. Once shipped, UPS will generate a tracking number and send it to the email you provided. You can then follow your plant’s journey and ensure someone is available to unpack it on arrival day.
