It is a dynamic accumulator, drawing minerals out of the soil and into the roots and leaves, a compost accelerator, a fine ingredient in liquid manure (comfrey tea), beneficial insect attractor, mulch, weed suppressant, biomass accumulator,  a wound healer and it was traditionally called ‘knit bone’ by herbalists as it helps heals fractures. It’s an ideal permaculture plant!
