|This is another clever initiative from CONE. It makes us think twice about the common yet important wildlife on our doorstep.|
At Butterfly Conservation, being nice to nettles comes as second nature to us - we love them! Not only are nettles good for butterflies like Red Admiral, Comma and Peacock, they also have so much to offer to other wildlife. Our thanks go to CONE for increasing our awareness of this familiar and incredibly useful plant.

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.

|Roman soldiers posted in Britain were reputed to have brushed their limbs with nettles so the stings would warm them in the cold climate!|
