Very excited as I think my nettle soup is ready to use and reeks. My courgettes, sweet corn and French beans are looking a bit pale, can I use it on all of them? How about strawberries? Thanks smile

Yes - I think you can whack it on courgettes, sweetcorn and beans this time of year to get them producing lots of leafy growth. I'd give the strawbs something more potassium-based like tomato feed as they are now fruiting up. But I'm still learning about this, so others may have better advice! Just didn't want your post to go unanswered.

My sweet corn are looking a bit peaky so I'm perking them up with a high nitrogen feed. This is my first year at growing so I have no nettle soup but am thinking of growing comfrey to make a liquid feed next year.

Strawberries may need something different, high potash for example....

Aha, slow on the uptake there. I'd forgotten all about nettle soup. Thank you !
