Picking nettle tips

When it comes to foraging for nettles, I find that picking nettle tips is best.  We forage nettles regularly from the same few patches around our ancient woodland camp on the Kent Downs and by just taking the tips it seems to encourage new growth so that we can keep going back and harvesting right through until September time.

Picking nettle tips is just one of the many things we get up to on our 1 day foraging courses

You can see plenty of photos from these courses, as well as all of our others, on our Facebook page.
