Caring for Stinging Nettles

    Nettle seeds are tiny, light dependant germinators that can be started indoors or out. However, select your location carefully as nettles are very hardy and can spread quickly with the right conditions. Nettles can be assisted with stratification, but it is not necessary.

Typical uses of Stinging Nettles

Special features: Moist shade or woodland gardens. Bog gardens. Native plant gardens. Pond or stream margins. Low spots.

Ornamental use: The plant is used for ornamental purpose.

Medicinal use: Stinging nettle root is also used for joint ailments, as a diuretic, and as an astringent.
