    Nettle season isn't too far away in some areas so I thought it would be a good time to upload some footage from last year.

    This video is a bit long (ten minutes) and covers a lot of detail of harvest and cooking for folks that might harvest and eat nettles for the first time.

    Tried again this year to grow nettles plants given me by a local Italian Neighbour all dead within weeks.
    What is the secret to/of growing them!

    warm temperate - some frost - changing every year
    Super rich soil MA I believe is the key. My best nettles grow in a chook run that gets only occasional use these days.
