STINGING NETTLES

Product Description:

Urtica dioica If you know, you know. To some, nettles is an irritating weed, but like many strong-willed plants, it has its powerfully healthful properties, too. A folky herb, nettles offers an abundance of very valuable health-promoting qualities and has been employed for generations for human and animal consumption. As its name reveals, the plant has defensive, spiny hairs that can pierce bare skin, introducing a mixture of irritating compounds. Handling the fresh herb requires some care: gloves and long sleeves, but the offending spines break down easily with heat or drying. Use the leaves, stems and roots in teas, cooking, topical ointments and more. When sowing do not bury seed. Hardy in zones 3–10. Approximately 875 seeds per ⅛ gram. Germination code: (1)
