Nettle fertiliser

We have made some nettle fertiliser but after looking online to see what veg we can use on we are confused as the internet seems to contradict itself !!!!! Any advise would be a great help thanks in advance 😃😃😃

    Nettles are high in nitrogen so the resulting fertiliser is good for leafy plants but the ones that produce flowers (broccoli and cauli) or fruits - peas, beans, squashes, tomatoes, peppers - need a comfrey feed which is more balanced and rich in potassium, phosphorus and trace elements.

    Can be good for runner beans, Allcockd1972.  One proviso is to be careful you haven't got any flowers in the fertiliser, or you'll have a load of seedlings (as I found out!)
