comfrey - a bee favourite

Russian comfrey (var. Bocking 14) is the plant most commonly associated with British organic gardening.

It is a deep-rooted sterile perennial whose leaves and stems are cut to enrich compost, mulch or used to create the most potent high potash liquid feed.

It is also adored by bees.

So, instead of cutting all the plants down every month, leave a few behind to provide a nectar rich food supply to busy bees.
