$3.95$44.10

Family: Nettles (Urticaceae)

Hardy to Zones 4 to 9

Herbaceous perennial. Flowers to 4 feet tall.  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.  Native to temperate climates world-wide. 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.  This seed will germinate in cold soils (slowly) or in warm soils (quickly).  Nettles is very easy to grow from seeds–sprinkle on the surface, press in firmly, keep moist and in the light, and watch the magic happen.  Thin or transplant to 1 to 2 feet apart.  Nettles grows best in a nitrogen-rich soil.
