Nettles, Stinging (Urtica dioica) potted plant, organic

(5 customer reviews)

$7.50$50.00

Family: Nettles (Urticaceae)

Hardy to Zones 4 to 9

Herbaceous perennial. Native to temperate climates world-wide. Nettles are dioecious, meaning that the plants are either male or female.  Not self-fertile, as both male and female plants must be grown if seed is required, and seed will occur on female plants only.  Official variety. In the early spring find Chickweed overrunning the rich garden beds, Dandelion in the upland pastures, Dock in the lower pastures, Watercress where the stream runs cold into a pool and Nettles along the edge of the stream. All wild spring vegetables.   Wait until the little Nettles are four inches high or so, and snip them off. They must be lightly steamed to disarm their stinging hairs. Eat the Nettles, and drink the water in which they were steamed.   Traditional usage (TWM): Allergies, builds blood.  Source of trace minerals, potassium and the blood-like molecule known as chlorophyll. Plant prefers moist soil in sun or shade.

Potted Plant, Certified Organically Grown

  2. Question

    Lee Mitchell

    Do deer like to eat Nettle? We have wild deer in the neighborhood – I would rather place my pot of Nettle on the deck along with cactus plants, rather than up on my front porch where I have some herbs in pots.

      deer don’t much like nettles, they like soft and smooth things like plantain and chicory, dandelions, broccoli.

  3. Question

    Claire (verified owner)

    Hello,

    I purchased the stinging nettle plant last year from you. I put it in a pot and took it inside for the winter. It looks like it’s dead now, so I’m going to order another one. Should I not bring it inside for the winter? I watered it all year long. Do you have any advice for growing it in a pot?

    Thank you

      Hi Claire, I’m sorry that happened. The stinging nettle is quite winter-hardy and doesn’t need to be brought in for the winter–you can leave it outside and let nature water it.

      Hi there,

      Is it too late to purchase nettle plants this year or will more be available in the coming months? I see lots of comments about ordering in March to receive by May. I am new to herb gardening and not sure what time of the year they are usually available.

      Thanks!

      Hi Makenzie, At this point you would be right on schedule to sprinkle some nettle seeds in greenhouse or garden. They are extremely easy from seed and you wouldn’t be able to get a plant for some time due to our full shipping schedule. Richo

  5. Question

    Kirbie

    I live on a mountain with rocky, heavy red clay soil. Some examples of wild plants here are mullein, black cohosh, goldenrod, mayapples. Will I have to amend my soil for a stinging nettle plant or can I just put it directly into the soil here?

      Hello Kirbie, Yes, amend. Nettles is a Nitrogen lover. Composted chicken manure works great. Choose a shady and moist location. Richo

      Hi, I live in Florida and I want to buy the Nettle plant. How tall is the ones you have for sale?

      Hello Deyar,
      Thank for contacting us. Just to be clear, the nettle plants may be ordered and paid for now but will not ship until after March 15th. Height of plants when shipped is almost immaterial–the important thing is to have a well-established root system–after planting, if well-rooted and healthy, they grow at a very fast rate. I can’t say how tall they will be months from now when they are shipped–hopefully not too tall to fit in the box. Richo

  6. Question

    Claire (verified owner)

    Will growing stinging nettle in a large pot still allow for high nutrient and mineral content in the plant? Or does the plant have to be in the ground in order for it to source nutrients/minerals.

      It’s fine to grow it in a pot. Nettles always wants plenty of nitrogen so its easy to give a rich soil in the pot. it’ll be fine nutrient-wise

    Good experience

    Robert Bissett (verified owner)

    The three stinging nettle starts arrived today in good shape. You did a super packaging job. I see why you charged so much for shipping. I was expecting maybe bare roots wrapped in a moist paper towel and plastic bag. They look healthy and full of life. Tried sprouting seeds twice, several dozen, not one came up. I really was hoping to get them going this year. Now I have a good chance.

      It says to snip them at 4” tall, once they’re 4” tall, how far down should I snip them to? Should I cut them off at a joint?

      Hi Casey,
      It’s not too critical. The main point is that you cut back the plants before they go to flower. You can cut them back down to the crown, they will regrow.

      The site says will start shipping in September but all options say out of stock. What gives? I want to plant outside partial shade. Can you suggest another plant to plant next to it.

      Hi Gloria, I think its because plants in general are now shipping out actively but we’re low on stock for stinging nettles. Most people plant dock next to nettles. Stinging nettles is very easy from seed–I suggest you just go for the seed and plant it. Richo
