Talkback: How to make a comfrey feed

Posted: 24/07/2013 at 16:46
I make my own by placing 8 comfrey leaves stalk first into a empty cleaned 2 Litter drinks bottle. I then add rain water from my water butt to about 2 inches from the top, then replacing the top to the bottle this I then shake daily! it takes about 8 wk/ks for the leaves to break down !I made my first batch Last year seemed to work well I add a small amount to a watering can witch I then fill with rain water, this I leave over night to allow the liquor to homogenise 'activate the full can of liquid feed for use the following morning'... repeat m

Hi all, I'm writting in responce to variouse items in this months copy of GW magazine 'July 13', I have no Idea how online forums work !! Lets have a go in responce to "how do I tackel slugs", as a beliver in permaculture  I have been encoraging wildlife in to my garden for some years now!  Natural predation of  perceved pest's drawing in headgehogs  thrushes etc  Slugs provide a dymnamic influx of wildelife to to the garden! ensuring every area is poplated with activity ! If you have a handy resorce such as Badgers to also naturaly 'manage' you Slug population  balance is key. Encorporating nectar rich Perennials into your garden  provides a backboan of support for insects- wider wildelife ! this months offer p4-5 offering  48 / 24  'free perrenials' seems to me to be an ideal starting point !  planting being aware of there fully growen size ! other could be planted in Linners to bulkup , providing plants which could be given away next spring! ? or they could be serobticiously planted in aminity beds where apropreate "for thouse gurrila gardeners amung you"
