Lidl never seem to put essential info on there garden stocks ,why i don't know as iv had really good results with there stuff,at the moment one of there fig trees a friend bought me is just a star, it can be very annoying i agree especially with something like how big a tree is going to be.  

Help! Am I growing stinging nettles!?

Posted: 06/06/2014 at 17:19

Nettles ,are good for compost they love to nestle in and grow like hell ,so make sure they are dead or Nettle tea is easy and full of nitrogen ,our allotment ladies had the most wonderful compost heap last year nettles 5 feet high,and roots just as long ,
