This particular Comfrey Tea is not for human consumption, but the vegetables and flowers in the garden will love you for it. Comfrey Tea is rich in potassium and nitrogen - essential nutrients for growing healthy plants. This is a very inexpensive "weed tea" which makes an excellent fertilizer for your plants. Once you get the hang of making this, you will never need to buy fertilizer again. It is super simple to make, but be warned, it smells really horrid - that's what makes it so good for the garden.

Time: 2 - 4 weeks

20 - 30 fresh Comfrey leaves

2 - 3 buckets of water

Find a large garbage bin with a secure lid


Method

Grow several Comfrey plants.

Harvest the leaves of your Comfrey plants - about 20 - 30 leaves are required to make a good strong liquid fertilizer. The leaves will grow back quickly, so don't worry about stripping the plant bare.

Comfrey Tea ready to use


Place the Comfrey leaves in a large garbage bin with a sealed lid (to keep out mosquitoes and flies) and add enough water to cover the leaves completely.

Let the Comfrey Tea ferment for 2 - 4 weeks with the lid on, so that it turns brown and begins to smell really disgusting and rotten (that's actually what you want to happen).

Now your fertilizer is ready to use. Fill a watering can half full of the Comfrey Tea concentrate and fill the rest with water. Then, pour your diluted mixture on all the vegetables and flowers every ten days to make them grow like crazy. Happy gardening.
