    Please could you confirm that Comfrey leaves are safe to eat. Although delicious, I understand that they are very bad for one’s liver, possibly even causing cancer.

      Hi Elaine, white flowered comfrey, our native comfrey, is safe to eat. Reports about other comfreys are unconfirmed but if in doubt stick to white comfrey.
