I cannot say enough that planting Comfrey is an invasive menace.
I have to agree Cat. If I had to choose just one plant I wish I would have never planted, comfrey would win. It has pretty flowers that really attract the bees, and plenty of nice big leaves for the compost. But here it is more invasive than thistle, stinging nettle, and daisies combined. Something? must carry the seed and my conditions must be just right for them. Even a small one has a tap root you will never find the end of.
For years I have diligently pulled the stalks off before flowers set on every plant I could find, but they just keep on coming!
