(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 Bio-dynamic practices.

What are the pros? Can handle severe neglect

What are the cons? Can be slow to germinate

Review:

I am terrible at following directions. I skipped the cold storage and direct sowed these seeds back in March, figuring it was still cold enough outside to do the trick. They showed no signs of life for MONTHS, then finally in June they popped up almost overnight. They’re still quite small, and I’m leaving them to get a bit more established before I harvest any, but given that I had written them off as a lost cause I am quite pleased! I expect they’ll come up much stronger next year. I look forward to using them for food, fiber, and medicine.

What are the pros? Easy to grow

What are the cons? Confusion about stinging parts

Review:

I planted these seeds and they have grown like a weed! However, there are no stingers. Nothing stings. Smooth and soft as any other plant. They are about to come to flower but I am weary to harvest them because there are no stingers. Everything I'm reading says to harvest them when they're young but I don't understand why they're not stinging yet. They're beautiful and tastes great and I know exactly what they are because I'm holding the seed packet in my hands right now and looking at them. I just don't know why they don't have any stinging hairs.

Review:

All my life i suffered with anaemia or low blood and fibroids I was supposed to get a blood transfusions but my husband told me to try drinking the stinging nettles bush as a tea for one month. no juices or sodas, if it's still low then go ahead with the transfusions. So he brought the bush home and I tried it. Not only did I not need the transfusions but my fibroids and syncs shrunk. 10 years later, I and still fibroids free and was able to donate blood. I told my doctor about it when he asked what did I do, He is now a believer along with other people who has the same problem.
