To Make Fertiliser
Soak the leaves in water for approximately 4 weeks, this produces a potash high feed ideal for tomatoes and potatoes. 
Alternatively you can pick the leaves and leave them for at least 48 hours and then use them as a mulch. 
Some gardeners also lay comfrey leaves in trenches which they then plant potatoes in.
