I've been asked quite a few times lately if I would be selling Comfrey crowns and root cuttings again this year and there's good news, it's back in stock! I was just waiting for the plants to get full grown this year before I dug them up and divided them.
Do I Want Crowns Splits or Root Cuttings?
Root cuttings are 2 to 4 inches long and about as thick as a pencil and thicker. These can be planted in spring summer and early fall and can take up to 8 weeks to sprout. Plant the cuttings horizontally about 1 to 2 inches deep. Cuttings planted in late fall can overwinter and sprout in spring. Cuttings are your best option to grow many plants affordably.

Crowns splits are the part of the plant when divided, and will usually have green sprouts out of the top. The green sprouts may die when planted but will grow back quickly. Plant crowns up to the base of the growing green sprouts that are growing out of the crown base, These are the best option if you are looking to have your comfrey produce usable leaves as soon as possible. You can plant these spring summer and fall.
