Just to let you know that the very uncommon neophyte Symphytum bulbosum (Bulbous comfrey) is in full bloom right now (noted April 4th) along the banks of Cowards Lake, the stream which heads to the SW of Abbotsbury in Dorset. The plant is extensively naturalised on both banks of the stream, centered around grid reference SY566855. The corolla is a lovely creamy yellow, the calyx very deeply divided and - if you can get past the nettles which accompany most of these plants - the roots are distictly tuberous.
