Anyone know where any might be growing....I am looking for them so that I can steep them to make a fungicide/pesticide and a natural fertilizer. Thanks!

Has anyone tried this before?

Are you referring to stinging nettle and/or false nettle? If so, the Texas Discovery Gardens will be selling some 4" plants at the sale on May 15th. I grew them!

I don't know where any growing wild are, but I recently saw a post on 'My Urban Homestead'@ wooddogs3.wordpress.com about cooking nettles and followed a link to Richters Herb Specialists http://www.richters.com/newdisplay.cgi? ... 18669.6938 where one can buy stinging nettle plants. I'm thinking of planting them in my back ally where 'taggers' keep spray painting my back wall.
