Stinging Nettle Heirloom Herb Seed
40 days. 100 seeds. The Stinging Nettle also known as Bull Nettle, Tread Softly and Common Nettle has fine hair on its leaves and stems that when touched by bare skin releases chemical irritants. This plant is of high medicinal value and is known to have been used in treatment of various illnesses ranging from eczema to arthritis to diuretics. The stinging effect of the plant is neutralized after cooking or drying and the edible plant is used as a vegetable or in soups and stews. It makes a great tea too! Open pollinated seeds.
