Be Nice to Nettles

Did you know that today is the start of the UK's sixth National Be Nice to Nettles Week? I'm not kidding. It isn't as daft as it sounds. The caterpillars of some of our prettiest butterflies munch stinging nettles. So we need to preserve nettles to save our butterflies. The "week" lasts 11 days and includes Nettle Day at the Natural History Museum, London, on Saturday 27 May, 10.00-17.00. Nettle-based refreshments will be served!
