Red Admirals and Tortoiseshells are best suited by the nettles being cut back in about late June so that they provide food for the caterpillars that mostly emerge from August. They like the nettles to be in a sunny spot. I suppose the ideal would be to have enough nettles to provide a range of ages to suit the egg-laying period.

Less than £1 per square metre sounds like a bargain to me, even at 2007 prices!
