I am harvesting beautiful comfrey plants. I cut them at ground level so they do include the seed heads. I have now dried them and separated the leaves and seed heads from the stems, keeping the heads separate. Now what? Do I simply store the seeds for planting later or do I add them with the leaves for medicinal purposes? Or keep them separate for medicinal purposes, in which case when would it be most appropriate to use them?
I have more plants blooming :blob: gloriously and will need to harvest them soon so help please!

What you do with the seeds is entirely up to how much comfrey you want. If you have enough you should toss the seeds. Personally, I would not give seeded comfrey to anyone else to start. I would get the Russian hybrid that is sterile.
