Urtica dioica
HERB-STINGING NETTLE Yes, it’s the very same plant that causes unwary walkers such discomfort! But drying or cooking eliminates the sting, and the attractive plants have a long history of use in herbal medicine, as a healing shampoo and reputed to alleviate symptoms in cases of arthritis, enlarged prostate, & many other complaints. Also used in salt-reduced diets. Young shoots taste like spinach and are rich in vitamins & iron. Perennial growing to 100cm.  Plants are covered in small hollow hairs that produce a stinging sensation, irritation & discomfort when in contact with the skin. Very nutritious, fast growing, attracts butterflies & is said to repel flies.

Nettle seeds are tiny, light-dependent germinators that can be started indoors or out. Sow in Autumn or very early spring. Scatter the small seeds lightly onto the soil & lightly cover with a thin layer of soil. Water as needed in dry periods.

More About Us

ABSeeds is an Australian owned business trading under the umbrella of Direct Compost Solutions which is owned and managed by Victoria Brun.

We as a company endeavor to provide to the public, Organic, Old Fashioned, Heritage, and Open-pollinated seeds that have not been genetically modified.

We purchased the business in November 2018 and renamed it to ABSeeds (All ‘Bout Seeds) to make the title shorter and represent what we hope to achieve with this business in the years ahead.

Seeds that we can’t grow ourselves we will acquire from people who grow for us, or we may purchase seeds from reputable heritage seed companies.
