Teasel is a dramatic and attractive plant which can grow up to a height of two metres or over. It is a biennial plant which may mean that during the first year you just see a giant rosette of leaves which hug the ground. In the second year it grows quickly with a thick spiny stem and leave which clasp round like a cup.

(See Bottom of page for special offer)

The spiny flower heads will have mauve flowers which attract bees. Later on you will get birds which will delight in pulling out the seed. Once the seeds have gone the dry heads can be cut to provide an attractive winter flower.
