Urtica dioica - Non-GMO - Open-Pollinated Biodynamic gardeners use stinging nettles to increase the potency of neighboring herbs, and to stimulate humus formation. An indicator of very fertile soil where it volunteers. Young shoots and leaves are delicious steamed as spring greens, very high in minerals. It also makes a great hair rinse or dry chicken feed. Choose your spot carefully; the spreading rhizomes as well as the leaves can sting. Cooking or drying removes the sting and young shoots taste like spinach, rich in vitamins and iron. Plant in damp rich soil with high nitrogen content; especially likes composted manure piles or the leaky side of your lushest compost bin. Chill seeds before sowing to improve germination. Takes 10-14 days to come up, harvest in about 45 days, and grows 3-6'. Perennial.
