Comfrey is an amazingly useful plant. Traditionally grown for medicinal uses, it is made into a poultice for wounds and sprains. A gorgeous plant, its purple blooms are loved by bees and are great for attracting and feeding pollinators. It can be used as animal food. Used in permaculture and organic gardening as it is a dynamic accumulator, bringing nutrients deep in the soil to the surface. Often planted near trees (especially fruit trees) to help fertilize them naturally. Can be used as a compost activator and a liquid fertilizer or mulch.
