Teasels

Teasels

I bought these as young plants from a local nursery and it was interesting to see the teasel heads develop. Now with the pink flowers, the bees and pollinators are very busy. Hopefully in the early autumn, the Goldfinches will enjoy them..:)

Lovely. We saw some growing at the edge of one of the fields yesterday on our walk. Just a thought.... when dried you could spray them and use them for indoor flower arrangement.

Thanks Kate, I'm hoping for clouds of Goldfinchrs in the autumn..:)

Yes that's a great idea Linda, especially for Christmas.

I used to have these when we were in Willow Cottage Janey. You should definitely get the gold finches.

I'm looking forward to seeing them on a warm summers day Rose. Today, grey and cool. Is it the same at yours?

Teasels are lovely plants, I see them growing around here from time to time as wild flowers on abandoned sites. Bees like them very much as I suppose do butterflies though I've never seen a butterfly on them.

you're going to think I'm batty, but, I planted teasel and forgot about it... weeded it all out the next spring! face palm!

Thank you Wildrose..:)

They really are Balc and when.It rains, it collects in the little bowls down the stems, perfect for birds and insects. Yes they are a favourite of the bees.

Oh no Lori! And so prickly too, I can just imagine with your gardening gloves on, giving them a good yank!
