According to these people anyway. I’m not sure if picking nettles for processing as they suggest is actually being ‘nice’ to them… but I don’t feel like being nice to them at all, as I managed to get stung on the back of my ankle whilst trimming the sheeps’ feet, and it still hurts! *whine*
anyway, that brings me to: what are nettles good for: #6 plant feed
I got this one from Green Rosie. Basically, we got an old dustbin, filled it with nettles, added water and squished, then put the lid on and left it. Revisited it and phew! it stinks! Dilute 1:10. Don’t know yet how good it is as a feed – we shall see.
