New! (Urtica dioica) Yes, it's the very same plant that causes unwary hikers such discomfort! But drying or cooking eliminates the sting, and the attractive plants have a long history of use in herbal medicine, as a medicinal shampoo and reputed to alleviate symptoms in cases of arthritis, enlarged prostate, and many other complaints. Also used in salt-reduced diets. Young shoots taste like spinach and are rich in vitamins and iron. Nettle is one of the foundations of Biodynamic practices.

What are the pros? Wonderful flavor

What are the cons? Watch out, it stings!

Review:

I'm Italian, and here this wonderful herb is called "ortica". It might not be the prettiest around (even if I actually like its dense, lush green foliage), but it is for sure one of the tastiest wild herbs available, along with borage, catchfly (Silene inflata & italica) dandelion and poppy leaves - way better than spinach, and with the same uses! Try italian-style ravioli filled with boiled ortica, ricotta and Parmigiano, served with melted butter, fresh sage and more Parmigiano. If you feel like experimenting, try adding a raw egg yolk in the middle of the raviolo, or some toasted hazelnuts with the butter.. in any case, try this wonderful tasty herb, generous and strong as only wild herbs can be! You won't regret it for sure. And if you delicately pull it with two fingers from the portion of the stem that is just under the leaves it won't sting you.

What are the pros? rare find

What are the cons? can become a weed

Review:

its an awesome plant. can be used to rinse hair and does work magic on weak dull hair. as for food...unless it's your last resort you are unlikely to enjoy it. also, be very careful as if uncontrolled it will easily take over of large patches of your yard and it's not an attractive plant and it will sting you and can cause allergies. so, if used right and with care - a great medicinal plant. otherwise, get something prettier.

Review:

Nettles grow wild here in SE Alaska and are highly prized by foragers. I'm thrilled to think that I may be able to grow nettles in my back yard. This summer I learned that they like to grow in areas of disturbed soil, especially where humans and animals pee. Here, that's potentially everywhere!
