Are they really such a nuisance? Many butterfly caterpillars, particularly the peacock butterfly
Whoops, some thing went wrong there, got cut off! What also wanted to say was, perhaps you could just leave one or two plants for them?
Hi all , another fine day on the allotment temps in the early teens but a very sharp frost forecast for tonight , Bunny on the subject of nettles if a plant is in the wrong place its called a weed ,take the advice as Sotongeoff kindly gives it ,if you want to cultivate nettles i am sure you would be able to fine a suitable spot
When the nettles start growing, pinch out the top young shoots and make yourself some nettle soup - it's delicious (does need stock adding though ) - then apply any weedkiller you need to!

They're growing now . Flame gun....and me ? Dangerous
Oh ok, I understand the problem now, but I hope you at least get some chicken poo from the neighbours to manure your garden.
nettle beer .
