Yes, it’s the very same plant that causes unwary hikers such discomfort! But drying or cooking eliminates the sting, and the attractive plants have a long history of use in herbal medicine, as a medicinal shampoo and reputed to alleviate symptoms in cases of arthritis, enlarged prostate, and many other complaints. Also used in salt-reduced diets. Young shoots taste like spinach and are rich in vitamins and iron. Nettle is one of the foundations of Bio-dynamic practices. Urtica dioica are a hardy perennial nettle normally considered to be weeds, although if you have the space to leave some, they can be an excellent source of food and habitat for butterflies such as the red admiral, peacock and small tortoiseshell.
Common Stinging-Nettle seeds should be sown in spring or autumn outside, where they are to flower, and covered lightly with soil. Germinating seeds is normally easy. Ideally choose a site with reasonably fertile soil where plants can be allowed to spread.
