    The only stinging nettle found in Britain is Urtica dioica.

    Apparently one in a hundred will be of a variation that doesn't sting. Of course the only way to find out is to grasp the nettle......

    You don't stop doing new things because you get old, you get old because you stop doing new things. <3
