1. Lets say I have two comfrey plants in my yard -- one Bocking 4, the other Bocking 14. How can I tell which is which, or are they visually identical?
2. How late in the year can Bocking cuttings be planted? I dug up and divided a 3-year old Bocking 14 (I think!) on 25 September. 16 crown cuttings, 30-something root cuttings. All were planted 26 September. Today, almost a month later, 15 of the 16 crown cuttings took hold, all 15 with multiple 3" to 6" leaves, happy plants. Conversely, exactly *zero* root cuttings show any evidence of life, not a single leaf yet. I'm in Zone 7, no frost yet, I'm expecting first frost in about two weeks.
