Item details

Lovely biennial, very similar to the well known wildflower, the Common Teasel, but with more finely toothed, delicate-looking flower heads. A valuable source of nectar for bees and butterflies, and much loved by seed-eating birds. Makes a very attractive dried flower. A hardy plant which will happily grow anywhere, and if left to self seed, will come up year after year.

Hardy Biennial
Flowers: Mid-late summer with teasels in autumn
Height: 100-150cm
Position: Position: Sun or semi-shade in any soil

Packet of 20 seeds

Our seeds are hand packed in our unique, reusable, paper packets and a detailed growing guide is supplied to help you get the best from your seeds.


Sowing Instructions: Sow at any time of year, except early to mid-summer. Sow on the surface of a moist, free-draining peat based seed compost (eg. Levington) and just cover the seed with sieved compost or vermiculite. Seal in a polythene bag or place in a propagator and maintain at 15-20C. Germination should take place in 1 – 3 months.

Growing Instructions: When the seedlings are large enough to handle, pot up individually into small pots (7-9cm) and grow on in well-ventilated conditions at about 13 to 15C. Overwinter the seedlings if necessary in a frost free place. When established, gradually acclimatise to outdoor conditions before planting out in a sunny or semi-shaded postion.

Alternative Method: Can also be sown in spring directly in the garden where they are to flower. Sow the seeds on the surface of well raked soil and just cover them with a fine sprinkling of soil. Water well and keep the area weed free until the seedlings emerge. Thin the young plants to 20cm apart as necessary.

Will come up year after year if left to self seed.
