Hi i think the special Comfry is called Russian bok 14 its supposed not to take over your garden like the ordinary Comfry,Steve is right you also need to use whatever you make correctly,

different plants will thrive on different amounts of NPK, depending on their growing requirements.

 For instance, flowering or fruiting plants need the right nutrients to help sustain the growth of the bloom or the fruit. They need phosphorus to promote growth of the root and buds, as well as relatively larger volumes of potash to encourage healthy fruit or flower production. If you give flowering or fruiting plants too much nitrogen, the chances are that you’ll just encourage an abundance of leafy growth – and not much more. Not ideal for promoting flower blooms or a heavy fruit yield! i make nettle tea and comfry and follow these rules its free and works well so does seaweed tea. go to  Is Nettle Fertiliser Suitable for All Vegetables?

hope this helps Alan

Hi all, a couple of months ago Kate bought  a Pyracantha  for £1.95 about 8/10 inches high looking sad ,after a lot of TLC its 20 inch now and really going fot it , today  we very carefully  planted it I lent the spade on the fence it slid off and broke the plant, the root and stem left are 6/8 inches so weve left it planted it looks and should be ok Now the main part is about 12 inches long with 6/8 young branches all about 7 inches long on it looking fit, Now can i do anything with it, can i plant it as a long cutting or cut it down shorter or is it next years compost,i hope not. fingers crossed.
