4. Lastly, I was wondering what plants community gardens have planted as
'communal' plantings, things which grow and can be shared around or take up
too much space for individual plots so could be in community areas.
If comfrey gets out of control, it means that you aren't using it enough in
composting. Comfrey is also plant medicine -- if a plant is ailing or
stressed, cut up a bunch of comfrey leaves and place them in a circle
around the plant. The plant almost always gets better. We have three huge
plants and they aren't enough!
Has anyone had problems with comfrey getting out of
control - we haven't planted any yet but think it might be good for
composting and mulching?
