Thanks for that MP - I didn't know....

I'm always nice to nettles.... but they are not often nice to me (unless they are in nettle beer :drunken: )

Lots of interesting stuff on that link. Not a single tip on how to get rid of them, though! :shock:

If you nip down to Natural History Museum in London on Saturday 27th of May to join in with the Nettle day you might notice that self sufficientish is mention on their leaflets. - A recipe for nettle haggis and the nettle beer recipe, I felt pretty honoured when I was asked.
