Description
A clump, or bed, of stinging nettles. These are growing in spring, where the stinging potential of the nettles is high.

Stinging nettles can be used as food (rather like spinach), and to stimulate human skin. A traditional antidote to relieve the sting of a nettle is to rub the affected area with a large dock leaf.
