Nettles are good for you, and one of the most versatile weeds...but I hardly see them in New Zealand

Hi Alessandra

We had one across the road from us in my last house, but it was the only one I saw in my neighbourhood ... I have a friend down south whofertilised her garden with sheep poo and had nettles spring up everywhere!!!

I have seen a few since we've been living out of town in a more rural area for the last few weeks ...
