    My plant was about 5 inches tall, ate down to 1 inch. :Bawling: Would a groundhog do this?

    bunnies like it too.

    comfrey is pretty hardy. it will probably come right back.

    You can't kill the stuff, my deer seem to like to sleep in it more than eat it. But then again, they could be eating tons of it and I won't know it as there is so much out in back.
