This plant is a premier ‘companion’ for fruit trees; it grows rapidly, can be cut back several times during the growing season as mulch and will die back in winter, breaking down into beautiful soil over time. The pretty flowers attract insects such as bumblebees which will also pollinate fruit tree flowers. The roots grow very deep, and once planted it is nearly impossible to move, so decide carefully! Best planted at least one metre away from the trunk of a newly-planted tree. This chunk of root can be further divided if desired.

Comfrey root, clump
