Teasle 1

Teasle 1


Product Description

Teasle (Dipsacus fullonum): The dried seed heads of the teasle resmble some sort of hideous medieval weapon. But as always with natural forms they are perfectly evolved for their function; to protect the precious seeds they contain from seed predators, but make them available for dispersal by ‘hitchhiking’ on passing animals.

The dried heads were once used to ‘tease’ wollen cloth – hence the name, the seeds are a preferred food of the Goldfinch; one of my favourite garden birds.
