How long should comfrey tea steep?
Likewise, people ask, how long does comfrey tea last?
I keep my comfrey for about 6 months to a year in the butt but I keep topping it up as I crop the comfrey. It lasts over the winter as well.
Beside above, is it safe to drink comfrey tea? You can also drink dried comfrey root and leaves as tea. Today, eating or taking any form of comfrey by mouth isn’t recommended. It’s considered unsafe, due to the pyrrolizidine alkaloids that comfrey contains.
One may also ask, is comfrey tea good for plants?
Comfrey has the three major nutrients plus high levels of calcium, which can be very beneficial if harvested and made into comfrey tea for plants. This nutrient-rich food is applied as a liquid soil drench or as a foliar spray. The phosphorus helps the plants remain vigorous and fight off disease and pest damage.
How often use comfrey tea?
Use comfrey tea as a side dressing every 10 to 14 days from flower set through the development of fruits. As a foliar spray, quit applying comfrey tea at least a month before harvest. Comfrey tea diluted is an excellent fertilizer for container vegetables.
