NETTLES (URTICA DIOICA)

7.95

Classic “nutrative” herb in the wise woman tradition, nettles are a nutritional powerhouse extremely rich in easily assimilated forms of calcium, magnesium, potassium, iron, protein, chlorophyll, and a whole host of trace minerals and vitamins.  Perennial vegetable- the young tops are eaten as a spring green (lightly steam them to remove the sting or add to soups, casseroles, etc) that is so delicious and can be harvested continuously from early spring until they start to flower in early summer.  Great for anemia, nutrient deficiency, pregnancy and post-partum, to strengthen the adrenals and build energy and over-all an amazing health tonic.  Easily dried for tea.  Safe for daily use.  Prefers moist, fertile soil in full sun to part shade but will grow most anywhere.  Spread around the garden so give it plenty of space.  Hardy perennial to Zone 3.
