Teasel, propagating or saving seeds?
Daughter may be moving house soon, and would like to take a teasel from her existing garden to the new one.
What is the best way to do this? Thanks.
Collect seeds, because they die after flowering.
How can you lie there and think of England
When you don't even know who's in the team
Is it one that's just flowered for the first time this year? If so then collect one or two of the heads in a paper bag when the plant dies back. Otherwise, if they've been in the garden a long time, then there should be seedlings that can be transferred to pots. They have a deep tap root though so dig them up carefully.
Tradition is just peer pressure from dead people
That’s very helpful, thanks to you both. The main plant flowered this year, so I will advise her to collect any heads. I’m sure there must be some seedlings, if she looks, and can recognise them. The current garden was very neglected until they moved in a couple of years ago.
The seedlings look like primrose leaves but with soft prickles on the upper surface of some of the leaves
In London. Keen but lazy.
