Nettles

Urtica dioica.

Perennial. Hardy zones 4-9.   Our family loves early spring nettles, the first green on the table from outside!  Snip the nettles when they are 4 inches and steam them to disarm their stinging hairs! . Also makes a great tea and is traditionally used for building blood and helping with allergies.  Plant prefers moist soil in sun or shade. Sow on surface and keep evenly moist until germ. Transplant to 1 to 2 feet apart. Nettles grows best in a Nitrogen-rich soil.
