This valuable herb has many uses. Medicinal application of comfrey root and leaf has been documented extensively, mostly in healing bruises, soft tissue damage and broken bones. We use comfrey leaves as a compost ingredient, feed them to chooks in a forage system, and use them as mulch when the plant dies back over winter.
