Is it cheaper than nyjer Mike? I'd rather give the goldfinches teasel seeds if I could get them in large amounts
I saved all my teasel heads from last year. please can you tell me are the seeds the actual spines on the flower head or are they inside these spines? should I just scatter the flower heads to spread the seeds or sow them in trays?
Also could I put the whole flower heads ina bird feeder?
The seeds are inside the spines, down at the bottom (if they're still there), if the heads were ripe when you picked them they will have dropped some to germinate by themselves.
If you put the whole head in a bird feeder the birds may not be able to get into the seeds. I like to leave them on the plant and watch the goldfinches take them
Thanks for your input I will try both.
