I promise this is not a joke ,i want to make a 6foot by 6 foot area for nettles to make nettle tea again this year ,last year i trimmed other allotments for it,so my question is simple if i try to contain it by surrounding it with roof tiles a couple of feet into the ground then put raised sides on it maybe 3 feet high to make a goodbed for it will it contain it or does it send out seeds will i be wasting my time, now theres a question i hav,nt seen afore seriosly what u tink
