Comfrey



The comfrey is still going strong.  Grown from seed last year this variety is a rich dark purple.  The bees love it and it's good for the compost bin.  Helps things rot down faster.  Leaves laid in strategic positions can also be used to tempt slugs away from susceptible plants. 

Apparently we're in for a heat wave over the next few days.  Our Indian Summer.  So, out in the garden to do some tidying up and cutting back.

That comfrey's a really lovely colour - I don't think I've ever seen one such a deep purple.
