I live to the south of Middlesbrough, North Yorkshire. Somewhat overcome by the work needed in the garden, I share bits of it! Twitter @oldgreyheron

I bought some non-invasive comfrey roots last year and potted them in this 12" pot. Not a lot happened, but this year they're growing away. What do you advise? I'm growing for compost enhancement. Many thanks. #advice #compost

I didn't know you could get a well behaved one. Will have to look out for that. I think it is quite a pretty plant. 😀

@oldgreyheron I've just posted a pic of the ones I planted into the ground this time last year (about the same size as your pic) this year they have taken of big style. I've just cut them back to a few inches from the ground and chopped them up and added to the compost heap. Should get another couple of cuttings from the plant this year (apparently!). This site has some good advice: https://www.growveg.co.uk/guides/grow-your-own-fertiliser-using-comfrey/
