|I think it is important to recognise the value of nettles and the role that these and other weeds play in the wider environment. I hope National Be Nice to be Nettles Week goes some way towards improving the image of the nettle.|
CONE Project Co-ordinator
Garden Nettle Patch Survey
Please tell us about the wildlife in your garden nettle patch.
Don't worry if you can't identify everything in your nettle patch - just describe what you find as best you can. We are simply after a broad picture of the value of garden nettle patches this year - the results will be used to formulate a more comprehensive survey in future years.

|Nettles were often hung in bunches in larders because of their fly repellent properties.|
