Nettle Tea
    #445679 - 07/13/10 12:10 AM (6 years, 4 months ago)

How much tea you you mix with your water is for the most part trail an error. However, if you start weak, it'll be more trail than error. A suggested ratio for this tea would be 1:5 - 1:7. In my experience, the darker and thicker the liquid, the more concentrated it is.

Net (designed for laundry tabs) stuffed full of nettles...



Nettle net placed in a bowl of water...



Then just leave the leaves to brew for a week or so, in a warm place,, and the Nettle Tea will be ready to use.

The second method of extraction produces a more concentrated tea that is to be mixed with your water. Again ratio's of dilution are are best to be worked out by each person. A suggested ratio would be from 1:10 to 1:15. As an organic head, It is important to me that I use rainwater to sustain the micro-organisms. Does it help,  :shrug: I like to think so.

Take a 2 litre plastic bottle, stuff it full of chopped nettles, add a little bit of water (100ml will do) and replace the cap.

Drill a tiny hole in the cap.



Sit bottle upside down in a container, a bucket will do.





After 3-4 days the plant material will start to break down and a thick, dark green liquid will start to drip out of the bottle, within 8-10 days you will have about a litre of concentrated nettle juice. Dilute 1:10 and use.




There are lots of other highly useful plants in the British countryside, Comfrey is a prime example, concentrated Comfrey juice produced with the bottle method I described has an NPK of around 8-5-20, wonderful stuff to use until mid flower.

Dandelion: potassium, phosphorous, iron, soda,

Dock: potassium, phosphorous, magnesium

Comfrey: nitrogen, potassium, magnesium, calcium, iron, silica,

Nettles: nitrogen, potassium, calcium, iron, copper, sodium, sulphur, formic acid, ammonia, carbonic acid

Horsetail: magnesium, calcium, iron, silica, cobalt

Chamomile: potassium, phosphorus, calcium, lime

Yarrow: nitrogen, potassium, phosphorus, copper, lime, sulphur
