How do you manage your nettle patch?
Do you leave it to grow for butterflies?
Do you cut it down to the ground at certain points of the year?
Do you just cut off the seed head bits?
Do you compost it all, or just not seed heads and roots?
I had left mine for butterflies but not seen many this year anyway. I cut off the seed heads but maybe not all because I’ve had some nettle growing out of my made compost last year. I’m wondering if I should chop it all back and get the roots out too from the patch because it’s getting too big. I’ve not been brave enough to cook it or make nettle tea. Should I get rid and put it in the green bin for end of year now summer is over?
