Great for my garden as i have a massive nettle bush at the back of my garden that keeps getting overgrown!

I have just started to get into gardening and find these tips excellent. I also have a lot of nettles to get shut of.

Love the idea of putting weeds to good use! As nettle feed if full of nitrogen, will it encourage leaf growth at the expense of flowers? Can I use it to feed my parched and hungry lawn?

I'm sure you are aware but no mention of the rat tailed maggots after first seeing them. I thought you might like to say that they are actually the larva of the drone fly, commonly known as Hover Fly which are very good pollinators which we all really need to encourage.
Great article.

I have been using nettle feed for the last few weeks since seeing it on Gardeners World last year.
Two days after feeding brassicas I can see a difference in the plants. It has also made the tomatoes look really look good this although I have also been feeding them with Tomorite on a weekly basis

i've been using this for years now and it is great but don't get any on you because it takes an age to get the smell out,brassica's and beets love this.

it works without smelling if you fill a lidded container with nettle or comfrey and don't add water
