Himalayan Nettle

Girardinia diversifolia (Himalayan Nettle; Allo) is a potentially useful plant for the forest garden. The young leaves, inflorescenses and seeds (roasted) are eaten). It’s a large clump-formimg perennial reaching 3m in damp woodlands. It’s also an important fibre plant, like stinging nettle.
I have a feeling it won’t prove hardy here, we’ll see….P1480606 P1480609

  1. Hi,

    I have been looking for Girardinia diversifolia seeds to trial to see if they will grow in my region. I would appreciate any information you have about where to buy them. I’m having a hard time finding any.
