If its very large, I would take cuttings now, , as back up. Then hack it all down and try and move the large rootball when its dormant, say October. You'll probably lose it though, hence the internodal cuttings as back up.

Thanks for the coffee, Dove.

Hi ho, hi ho, it's off to work I go.....

Cloudy here, I'd better remember a rainmac for when I come out of work. I guarantee the heavens will open at 5-55. Lets hope the stockroom doesn't flood again. One of the staff has to go to two funerals. Ex father in law today, mother of new partner tomorrow.

Comfrey like damp soil. It grows very well on the damp soil at the side of the river.

Its probably too dry  where it is and gets mildew.I keep cutting it and throwing it in a bin with some water. It makes good comfrey tea to feed tomatoes.

Can anyone identify this plesse?
