It Started with Comfreywith Corby Knight

Local herb expert Corby Knight answers gardening questions and signs copies of his informative book, "It Started With Comfrey: My Ten Years of Medicinal Herb Propagation."

"It Started with Comfrey": A useful guide of valuable information gathered from ten years of propagating and growing medicinal herbs from seeds. The author has included guidelines for 86 plants based on practical experience and research.

As a child growing up in rural New Mexico, Corby Knight begrudgingly helped with the weeding and irrigating of his parents' backyard garden and peach orchard. But that didn't prevent him from earning a degree in biology at the University of New Mexico and dsicovering a love for gardening and an interest in plants. After working a number of dead end jobs he worked for many years as a leather craftsman where he was forced to grow a garden to keep food on the table. Later he and his wife Sandy owned and operated a nursery in Albuquerque, 24/7! Between being a docent at the Albuquerque Botanic Gardens and leading a busy retired life, he found time to write this book about plant propagation.
