I have made several litres of comfrey fertiliser. Can anyone let me know the 

ratio of fertiliser:water ?  Also are there any plants I should not feed with this.

    Hi Christine, It depends on how concentrated you have made the comfrey liquid, but usually about 15:1 to 25:1.  However, the simple/foolproof way is to add it to water until the colour is like weak tea (without milk, of course!)  That way you can't go wrong.

    I use mine on literally everything and use no other type of feed except fish, blood and bone forked into the soil when planting things.

    A trowel in the hand is worth a thousand lost under a bush.

    Hi Bob, Thanks for your help with the comfrey fertiliser - I will try the weak tea

    method.  I also use fish blood and bone when planting.
