'Bocking 14' is a type of Russian comfrey and is a truly magical plant in the garden. It's a member of the borage family and boasts a higher nutrient content than common comfrey. Bocking 14' is high in potassium (K) phosphorus (P) and nitrogen (N), which are required for healthy plant growth, larger flowers and bigger fruit crops. This sterile variety won't spread as it doesn't produce seeds, so it stays where you plant it, unlike common comfrey which can become invasive. Leaves can be added to compost bins as a natural compost activator, they can be shredded and used as a nutrient-rich mulch around fruit and tomatoes. Plus, you can also make your own liquid fertiliser (Comfrey tea) from the leaves which can be harvested several times a year. Comfrey is also a fantastic bee magnet, with its small, purple, bell-shaped flowers. NOT A VEG, BUT USED TO MAKE YOUR OWN FANTASTIC PLANT FOOD. Supplied in 9cm pots.
Comfrey, the best companion available - Several decades ago, Frank Wood obtained a number of Bocking 14 comfrey plants from Garden Organic and he has been growing them for The Organic Catalogue ever since. Frank has now decided that it's time for a well-earned retirement and this left us with a dilemma as he as the only person with a comfrey plantation large enough to supply the increasing demand for the organic grower's favourite companion plant! We clearly didn't want to see this amazing plant disappear from the catalogue forever, so Dobies decided to take on the task of establishing our own 'Bocking 14' plantation down in Devon using mother plants provided by Frank. This exciting move means you will still be able to buy and grow your own plants knowing they originated from Garden Organic, got passed to Frank and are now grown and harvested on a sunny hillside in Devon, ready for you to plant in your garden!
