    Hi
    I’m interested in setting up some nettles in hanging baskets for z primary school to attract admirals. Has anyone done this before?

    Several schools have done this in the past, Picton. Follow Norm’s advice above and you should have no problems.

    In order to grow vigorously nettles do best in moist soil with some shade, and a feed of nitrogen occasionally. Hanging baskets are notorious for drying out, but if watered regularly, there is no reason why they shouldn’t grow OK. There is no guarantee they will attract admirals, it depends largely on whether they are in your area or not.
