NikiAnne in the Blue Comfrey Patch at Earthaven Ecovillage
NikiAnne: I have some blue comfrey here. I got gifted this by a friend and lo and behold it likes to spread. It’s ambitious and I’ve been using it in what I call my nursery; a place that I just put plants where I don’t know where I want them. Ultimately, but eventually they’ll find their own their final home and they lie low.
They have blue flowers- hence the blue comfrey name. They’re not as tall as the Red Russian variety of comfrey, but they multiply and they’re a great ground cover and keep the weeds at bay.
And they’re really great for guinea hens, turkeys, sheep, goats, and anything that likes to nibble on stuff that you want to keep at bay as well in your yard. So beauty and food all the same time.
