Herbs - Stinging Nettle (Urtican dioica)
About: Stinging nettle may well be our best local spring "superfood", being so rich in nutrients and very versatile in use. Though it has fine hairs on the stem which cause a stinging sensation if picked carelessly, it's sting disappears when the plant is cooked. Nettle leaves are commonly eaten steamed, baked (e.g. nettle-kopita), added to soups, used fresh or dried to make infusions. Plant in an area where it can spread. Nettle also has a long history of aiding skin conditions,arthritis and painful muscles and joints.
Comes in a compostable pot, hardened off and ready to plant. Grown with organic seed and organic soil.
LOCAL PICK-UP ONLY at Little City Farm- seedlings will be available Sat, May 25 or otherwise by appointment.
