Among the most used by gardeners promoting organic gardening, comfrey manure is also one of the most effective organic fertilizers in the garden and vegetable patch.
It also acts as a pest repellant and compost activator.
Thanks to its high content of organic matter, especially potash, calcium and nitrogen, it is a recognized growth and flowering stimulator for plants.
For a fertilizer richer in nitrogen, you will use the nettle manure.
Recipe for 10 liters of comfrey manure
- Pick 1 kg of very fresh leaves.
- Macerate in 10 liters of rainwater (less calcareous) for 1 to 2 weeks

We know that the liquid manure is ready when the liquid is black and the leaves form a puree at the bottom of the container.
- Then filter to remove any residue and have a perfectly clean liquid.
