Looks like I'm a little behind answering questions, below are my responses:

I hate to be 'that guy' but could I ask where this info comes from? I thought I was pretty well-read on these 2, but haven't come across this at all.
Jon's Response: My conclusions came both from my personal observation, and that of other modern comfrey farmers. I'm pretty sure I also read about it in the following book (which is free!)
Hills, Lawrence D. Russian Comfrey: A Hundred Tons an Acre of Stock or Compost for Farm, Garden or Smallholding. London: Faber and Faber Limited, 1953.
How long do the cuttings last before they need to be planted?
Jon's Response: They can last for months, but I recommend ordering them when you are about to plant. You can get a hold of me to put some on hold if you like.
Do I still have bocking 14 left? I'm also curious to know if comfrey attracts deer, and or rabbits?
Jon's Response: I only have a few bocking 14 plants I am keeping just in case, but am only selling bocking 4. I don't have wild deer or rabbits in my area, but my domestic rabbits love comfrey! I've heard of people saying that it is deer resistant, but I don't know from personal experience.
