Maintain a comfrey plant and use it to create ‘tea’

This is a badge bit (BB) that is part of the Level 1 badge in Gardening.

Comfrey is a tough, deep-rooted plant that can bring up nutrients from deep in the soil. Use the leaves to make a “tea” to use as fertilizer and growth-enhancer on other plants.

To complete this BB, the minimum requirements are:

  • Grow at least one comfrey plant until it is large enough to harvest leaves from
  • Make “tea” from the leaves
  • Use the tea on other plants

To document your completion of the BB, provide the following:

  • Photo of new comfrey plant(s) or roots and the location they will be planted
  • Photo of comfrey plant(s) growing
  • Photo of harvested leaves during the tea-making process
  • Photo of tea being used on other plants
