Every seed came up, they're about 3' tall with a sturdy stem. Waiting until mid March to put out in the southern (Ga) garden. Will be licking my lips watching them flower and fruit. I like these as an addition to a traditional red tomato salad.
I had 40 mph winds my greenhouse fell over and was so surprised the seeds survived two days in the cold under soil and are still growing. The roots were in tact so i transplanted them, they are doing just fine. 10 stars

Known for years as an amazing healthful herb, comfrey makes a wonderful green compost tea for your veggies.
Soft and fuzzy, the leaves and pinkish blue flowers are great cut-and-come again plant for your compost pile or for your animals as a feed-additive. Don't cut back more than one third of the plants to keep them healthy while harvesting. This is a seed variety, unlike Russian Comfrey. We have extremely small supplies of this amazing herb that's been used as a skin healing agent.
Grows up to 36" tall, starting this seed is best put in your refrigerator drawer in a lightly sealed zippered lock bag with a bit of water. Keep it in the drawer for at least 3 weeks, but not more than 2 months. This cold period simulates the cold of winter and allows the seed to start germinating. Start seeds indoors barely under the surface of sterile soil in a warm place, best if on top of a heating pad set on low. Keep the soil moist from below in a shallow tray, or covered with plastic while the seed germinates. Seedlings should start to emerge in 10 days. Grow in pots for about 3 months gradually hardening them off to transplant and set in the garden.
Comfrey spreads by the roots, so be aware of the tendency to spread when you place in the garden, you might want to segregate the soil with a barrier of some kind. Some farmers swear by the amount of animal feed comfrey will supply if given the chance!
