Description

Thompson & Morgan is delighted to work alongside the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew to offer special seed collections to home gardeners. Kew Wildflower Seeds have been specially selected by The Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew.

This statuesque biennial is best known and loved by the name Teasel! A native wildflower, Dipsacus fullonum is commonly found among grasssy countryside verges and bordering the margins of fields. The tall, spiky stems are topped with cones of purple-pink flowers that attract bees and other insects. As the blooms fade the seedheads provide useful food for birds - but also make wonderful autumnal stems for adding to dried flower arrangements. A lovely addition to the back of perennial borders, cut flower gardens and wildlife areas. For the best effect, allow it to self-seed, to create naturalistic drifts. Height: 1.5m (5'). Spread: 45cm (18").

Sowing

Sow February to June onto the surface of a good, free-draining, damp, seed compost. Cover with a very fine sprinkling of compost or vermiculite. Place sown container in a propagator or seal container inside a polythene bag at a temperature of 15-20C (59-68F) until after germination which usually takes 1-3 months. Do not exclude light as this helps germination. Transplant seedlings when large enough to handle into trays or 7.5cm (3in) pots. Gradually acclimatise young plants to cooler conditions for a few weeks before planting them in borders in sun or partial shade. Grow Teasel plants in any fertile, moist soil; including heavy clay soils.

Alternatively, sow direct outdoors into a well-prepared seed bed in autumn or spring. Gradually thin seedlings to roughly 30cm spacings. 

More Info
Water teasel plants regularly until fully established. Dipsacus fullonum will self-seed freely. If seedlings are not wanted, deadhead stems of teasel flowers as the blooms fade. Alternatively leave the seed heads intact as a food source for birds.

Thompson & Morgan strives to ensure that all its plants are delivered to you in the perfect condition for planting. While the majority of our nursery plants cope well with slight delays in intransit, sadly, the time it takes to deliver to certain locations in the UK means that we can't guarantee this for some of our smaller plug products and tender bedding and vegetable lines, which do not respond well to the extra journey time. So regretfully while we offer the majority of our live plant offering nationwide, we are unable to ship plugs, begging plants and tender vegetable plants to the following areas: HS, IV41-IV49, IV51, IV55-56, KW15-KW17, PA34, PA41-48, PA60-PA78, PA80, PH40-PH44, TR21-TR24, ZE1-ZE3
