Nettle Juice

Janey 82 hi, go to Allotmentheavenblogspot.co.uk then see guides and stuff, its got nettles and comfrey, if you do the dry one ( the black one) make sure you dilute to a weak tea. or it will burn the plants as the dry way makes a very strong thick feed much stronger than the 2 gallon bucket one,

had the same prob not long ago, i gave it a 25 to 1 mix of Nettle tea and watered it well in, did the trick nice and green, grass loves it, so did the Hydrangea that was cut to ground level after 10 years of neglect,it is now 3 feet high, deep dark green very strong and hopefully ready to flower next year and free.

Hi Dave iv been making the tea the dryer way and don't get the problem with maggots, also the overall smell is not such a problem, and simple to bottle up, also iv downloaded the nutrient strength of comfrey and nettle and they seem to be almost the same ,if anyone can actualy give me the NPK of them iv got N 1.5 P 0.5 K 5.0 rounded off as close as need be,or am i wrong Comfrey.s a bit stronger in the Potash ,id like to know as if im growing fruit next year i dont want to much root food as i do fruit food, not being experienced,any guide with feeding is good
cheers all Alan

hi sorry about all the ???? they we not in my original post, also Dandelion which i don't have the N P K for is apparently better than nettles or Comfrey ,worth a try if you have a problem with them, Marg try the dry way of making it not so smelly

Hi all im only putting this on as it might help to understand how it works it helped me,its of the net www.RuralMuse.co.uk Nutrients breakdown for plant food/teas N.P.K = Nitrogen, Phosphorous, Potassium Comfrey N 1.8 Nettles N 1.7 P 0.5 P 0.6 K 5.3 K 4.5 Is Nettle Fertilizer Suitable for All Vegetables? N= Nitrogen Leaf and Stem Growth P= Phosphorous Roots and Buds K= Potassium or Potash Fruit and Flowers And so this brings us to the question of nettle feed and its suitability. As already mentioned, nettle feed is a rich fertilizer, and helps to promote all aspects of growth. Nettles are nitrogen-rich plants, but the fertilizer acts as a good all-round general fertilizer too. In particular, nettle feed will also benefit dark green, leafy plants such as brassicas. So it???s fair to say that generally, many plants will benefit in some capacity from a dose of nettle feed. But it???s also fair to say that different plants will thrive on different amounts of NPK, depending on their growing requirements. For instance, flowering or fruiting plants need the right nutrients to help sustain the growth of the bloom or the fruit. They need phosphorus to promote growth of the root and buds, as well as relatively larger volumes of potash to encourage healthy fruit or flower production. If you give flowering or fruiting plants too much nitrogen, the chances are that you???ll just encourage an abundance of leafy growth ??? and not much more. Not ideal for promoting flower blooms or a heavy fruit yield! long but only the once Alan4711
