ive rotted down some nettles,is this good for feeding plants and veg.if so what do you surgest the mix should be.



Nettles are great in the compost heap provided you don't put the roots in. They're high in nitrogen, I believe.
When you say you've rotted them, have you put them in a bucket of water to rot, or in a pile, like a compost heap?

Assuming you mean you've put them in a bucket of water to rot down: strain off the liquid, put the remains of the nettles in your compost and dilute the liquid 1:10 and water on.
