As a followup of my post from last August, all of the plants survived the winter and are back up and growing. They are already bigger than when I took that picture last year, so there will be plenty of leaves for mulching the garden beds and for making nitrogen rich compost.

When I had access to  thirteen plants of Comfrey growing wild, I would cut them down   three times during their growing season,  right down to the ground and they grew up as large as ever.'After the third time I let them grow the rest of the season to set flowers, seeds and to grow again the next year.

Unfortunately it took me several years before I knew what they were and how good they were for adding to the compost.  I harvested them for about five or six years and now after the land being stripped there is a new duplex there  and so far no one has moved in as they are not quite finished.
