Due to high nitrogen deposits from agricultural activities, plants like brambles and nettles tend to overgrow other vegetation. However, nettles do have useful properties.

Nettle seeds don’t have a strong flavour, so you can use them without worrying about dominating your dish. An easy and fast way of harvesting seeds is shown in the video below.
