Symphytum spp. (comfrey) Symphytum spp, more commonly known as “comfrey” is a poisonous plant but is also used as a herbal remedy. The plant produces large leaves that tend to be hairy and small bell-shaped flowers. “Comfrey” contains pyrrolizidine alkaloids so if ingested, can cause discomfort.

Comfrey is an amazing plant. It is a dynamic accumulator so it mines nutrient with its deep roots and then stores the nutrients in its leaves. The leaves can then be chopped and dropped and turn into rich compost. Leaves can also be soaked in water to produce a rich fertilizer. The leaves can also help with skin problems for people.
Comfrey - Bocking 14 is sterile, and therefore will not set seed (one of its advantages over other cultivars as it will not spread out of control), thus is propagated from root cuttings. The gardener can produce their own ‘offsets’ from mature, strongly growing plants by driving a spade horizontally through the leaf clumps about 3 inches below the soil surface. This removes the crown, which can then be split into pieces. The original plant will quickly recover, and each piece can be replanted with the growing points just below the soil surface, and will quickly grow into new plants. When choosing plants to divide, ensure that they are strong healthy specimens with no signs of rust or mildew. When dividing comfrey plants, take care not to spread root fragments around, or dispose of on the compost heap, as each can re-root, and comfrey can be a very difficult plant to get rid of. Offsets can also be purchased by mail order from specialist nurseries in order to initially build up a stock of plants.

Calendula Herbal Oil:- This gentle, soothing and healing oil is perfect for anything from cradle cap, diaper rash, chapped or chafed skin, bruises, and sore or inflamed muscles. The oil can be used alone, or incorporated into salves, massage oils, lip balms, ointments, creams, and lotions. Organic Olive oil and Organic Calendula flowers 1:- Place Calendula blossoms in a clean, dry sterilized glass jar. If using fresh Calendula, Allow them to wilt for 12 hours to remove most of the moisture from them (too much moisture will cause the oil to go rancid) before adding to the jar. Pour any of the following, a light olive oil, or Jojobal, Almond or Grape seed oils ( any kind of oil that does not have a strong smell or taste.) into the jar, making sure to cover the blossoms by at least 1 inch of oil, but leaving enough space for them to expand. Stir well and cap the jar tightly. 2:- Place the jar somewhere warm, or on a warm and sunny windowsill, making sure you shake the jar at least 1-3 times a day. 3:- After 4-6 weeks, strain the herbs out using cheesecloth. Make sure you give the blossoms a good squeeze to get all the oil out then pour the infused oil into glass bottles. 4:- Label and date your oil and store it in a dark, cool place. Discard if oil goes rancid.

Fill the jugs with water to hold the heat. When I set up the shelves, I set the milk jugs under the bottom row or at the back of the green house so they don't have to be moved when I set trays in.

Tomato plants like deep watering. Why waste water when you can make a simple reservoir delivery system. Neat idea. The photo says it all.

Tomato plants like deep watering. This very practical and easy irrigation system will help your tomato plant get all the water it needs! Drill small to medium size holes into a 2 L plastic bottle and place it into the soil, very close to the tomato plant root. Make sure that the bottle mouth is left outside! In this way, rain water or the water that you pour into the bottle goes directly around the root and is not wasted in the case of a really dry soil.
