    Default Nettle tea (feed)

    I made a load of nettle feed last year and discovered that I had bottle loads full left over from last season.

    Will this still be OK to use while I wait for my new brew?

    Yep


    Or you could pour it over your compost heap to get it cooking, then start a new fresh batch

    Can I ask which plants is nettle tea good for? Or is it just a good multi-purpose feed for anything and everything? I am currently brewing some at the lottie but not sure what to use it on!

    Advice here on making nettle tea and comfrey tea How to make Comfrey & Nettle Fertiliser - Greenside Up

    Nettle tea is particularly high in nitrogen, so good for leafy plants (cabbage, lettuce, etc)
