    Hi I’m a newbie gardner and have just taken an allotment with huge stinging nettles that I need to clear, any advice, tips, help on how to do this effectively without using chemicals or power tools?

    Hi @mayleneindahouse
    Welcome to the forum – Id get a hand scythe and hack them down with that. Then try and dig up as much root as possible and then get hold of some old carpet and cover the ground with that for a few months – this should kill them off.
    You can use temporary planters on top of the carpet to grow stuff whilst you’re waiting.
    good luck!
