Comfreyjauche is a natural plant-strengthening organic fertilizer that you can easily make yourself. Suitable ingredients are the plant parts of all comfrey species. The best known representative of the genus Symphytum is of course the comfrey (Symphytum officinale), also called Comfrey, which looks back on a long track record as a medicinal plant. But the leaves and stems of the high comfrey (Symphytum peregrinum) or the Caucasus comfrey (Symphytum asperum) can be processed into manure.
Comfrey is an attractive and easy-care plant for the garden and shows from June to August colored inflorescences with flower bells that serve bumblebees as important food sources. You can also find it growing wild on humid soils, for example, not far from streams and at the clear edges and edges of forest. Incidentally, the Caucasus comfrey spreads over foothills and is therefore often planted as groundcover. It can be cultivated so conveniently as a renewable raw material for the Beinwelljauche in the garden.
All comfrey species are robust and perennial shrubs that reliably provide the needed bio-gardeners with their fast-growing leaves with the needed supply of comfrey. As a natural fertilizer comfrey is so interesting because the plant parts contain a striking amount of nutrients. Comfrey not only supplies plants with potassium, phosphate or nitrogen - trace elements, silicic acid and various tannins are also contained in the leaves and stems of the leg well.
Production of comfrey
Making comfrey for yourself is easy. In order not to weaken the plants, you should not take leaves and stems from the flowering shoots of the comfrey and harvest a single plant not more than four times a year. For ten liters of water comes a kilogram of fresh, roughly crushed plant parts. Let the whole thing, covered with a cloth, ferment for between 10 and 20 days. Because there is no new foam, you realize that the comfrey is ready. Now the slurry is strained and diluted 1:10 with water - and the organic fertilizer is ready for your garden!

If you also have nettles or marigolds in the garden, you can add a few handfuls of the comfrey. This increases, among other things, the content of potassium and nitrogen.
Use of comfrey in the garden
Comfreyjauche is particularly suitable as a fertilizer for strong-consuming vegetables such as cabbage, pumpkin, potatoes or tomatoes in the garden. The plant slurry can also be used to fertilize summer flowers or to allow fruit trees and berry bushes in spring an optimal start to the new garden year. Depending on the growth intensity, the comfrey is applied during the growth phase of the plants every one to three weeks. Pour the diluted manure directly onto the root area of the plants. If the comfrey is not administered via the soil, but sprayed as foliar fertilizer, it should be fine filtered again in advance and diluted with water (1:20), so that the nozzle of the sprayer is not clogged. Spray the plants with it every two to four weeks. Incidentally, you can easily compost the segregated digestate of manure or use it as mulch material for berry bushes.
Tip: When planting shrubs or shrubs, mix the debris with shredded comfrey leaves before returning it to the planting hole. This makes it easier for the plants to grow. In addition, comfrey leaves accelerate the decomposition when you throw them fresh on the compost.
