Description

A tall, striking native biennial, known for its large prickly seed heads which persist well into winter on roadside verges, waste ground and field edges. The lilac-pink conical flower heads are borne above serrated leaves in mid to late summer, attracting lots of bees, butterflies and other beneficial insects. The seed heads are also a good source of food for birds. Teasels are an excellent architectural plant for the back of garden borders or in wildlife gardens where they will self-seed freely for a continual display. Dried teasel flowers also make an attractive and textural addition to cut flower arrangements. Height: 1.5m (5'). Spread: 45cm (18").

Reasons to buy your seeds from Thompson & Morgan


1 packet (100 teasel seeds) (24264)

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.

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.
