Making Comfrey Compost Tea


Hello, It’s Jayne from Sister Sage Herbs.
I’m going to show you how to make comfrey compost tea. This one has gotten really big
and flopped over. I have already harvested it once and the tea was pretty stinky and
potent. So, I’m going to make another one hopefully not quite as long steeping but we
will see. The new growth is already coming up. I’m going to leave the small stems there.
Ok, I got a bunch and I’m just going to chop it up . It’s going into the (clean) garbage
bin. So it has a lid- I will fill it up with water and let it sit for a couple of days.
Mmm it smells like cucumbers! I’ll just show you what I have so far- I don’t
mind if I put the old ones in too. It won’t matter. After they are soaked, I will just
throw them on the compost pile- for some dry stuff. So I will do the whole plant, but I
will just demo this right now. Just filling it up … and that’s all you have to do. Let’s
see. It is all clear now, but in a few weeks it’s gonna look- I mean in a few Days, sorry-
few weeks and it would be pretty manky too. Ok, here we are at the comfrey tea- It has
only been about 4 days. And as you can see, it’s pretty nasty. It smells pretty bad. The
flies love it! But, what you do is you strain this off and then dilute your mixture 1 to
4 or 1 to 5 depending (on what you want). And water it on your plants. It makes a great
fertilizer. It adds potassium and nitrogen to your plants. But not too much. Ok, well,
See ya next time!
