    hi there

    I have lots of homemade nettle feed left over and wondered whether there’s any use for it once i’ve used what I’ve needed in my (raised bed) veg patch? Or does it have a ‘shelf life’? Could I toss it into the beds once the growing season is over, for example?

    Any help or advice much appreciated. Thanks so much.

    I use my left over nettle and comfrey liquid to water my compost heaps, just filling two plastic dustbins now ready for pouring on the compost during the winter.
