Fermented Nettle Extract is rich in nitrogen, phosphorus, calcium, selenium, zinc, magnesium and iron and promotes plant growth. Fermented Nettle Extract has unique growth-stimulating properties on plants. The active compounds in stinging nettles are reported to deter aphids, mites, and thrips.
Due to the pungent odor, we generally avoid spraying leafy greens like kale or lettuce with nettle tea. Or, directly onto fruit and veggies. However, nettle tea foliar spray is excellent for things like hemp (before flowering), ornamental plants, or tomatoes, peppers, eggplant or fruit trees – before their fruit appears.
