I live in Nova Scotia and I am looking for Russian Comfrey plant. If anyone knows a place I can get some rooted plants to plant in my property I would really appreciate it if you could give me the contact information.

I buy mine here: http://www.coescomfrey.com/comfrey.html The man is great to deal with and I've been very happy with the Comfrey I got from him. I have split and re-split mine several times now and it's all doing great.

Hi, sorry didn't see this earlier. Now it not the time but if you are still looking we can chat in spring.
I am in AB, so we would have to figure out shipping but I am growing comfrey for sale. prairietough.ca

I think my variety is Russian, its the kind that doesn't seed and you have to propagate it by roots.
Someone (Nicanor Garza) gave me some roots last year and now I have a bunch of roots, I'd be willing to mail a few.

Hi Ian,

If no one else speaks up, (hopefully some one will from your country), I can send you some this spring. Shipping them will be a small fortune. Just warning you. Marilyn

Does anyone still have some comfrey to share?  I tried to start some from seed over a month ago, but haven't gotten any sprouts.
