Nettle – Urtica dioica. What can you say about the stinging nettle? It hurts, it’s a nuisance, it takes over the garden! But it is also a life source to so many of our beautiful native invertebrates. Without it there would be less peacock butterflies, commas, red admirals, small tortoiseshells, ladybirds and so many more.
The wild corner is a celebration of our lesser loved but so important wildflowers and a plea to allow just a small corner of your garden to run wild, allowing these important plants to flourish. You can read more about it (and find a nettle soup recipe!) here.
This original watercolour features the nettle plant with and array of the creatures it supports
- Peacock Butterfly
- Burnished Brass Moth
- 14 spotted ladybird
- 7 spotted ladybird

It also shows the male and female flowers on the nettle.
This giclée print is reproduced from Ian’s original watercolour and pen and ink drawing.
The prints are beautifully printed onto sustainable Hahnemühle Hemp 290gsm Fine Art Paper. An eco friendly paper, with a natural white tone. It has a subtle surface giving the paper a pleasant, silky feel.
Hemp is a resource saving plant whose robust and long-lasting fibres have been a part of paper production for centuries, most notably used for the Gutenberg Bible and US Declaration of Independence. The image is printed using archival quality, Fine Art Trade Guild approved printers, inks and papers — tests have shown the prints can last over 100 years.
Frame not included.
The prints are from original artworks by Ian Hughes.
