Hi all, I made some nettle feed this summer,I`ve got over a gallon left over,kept in a closed jar. Does it keep ,or do I need to use it in some way --compost or on the garden ? Many thanks.

cg I do not think this is a good time for collecting best time is early spring they still have seeds on them.

Rocoll would the seed still be viable after a few weeks in water? I want to do nettle and comfrey but was wandering about the seeds
