A few days ago I spent some time collecting downy flower heads for tinder. At this time of year I tend to collect as much as I can so that I have plenty to see me through the year. In this video you can see me collecting thistles, rosebay willowherb, clematis, ragwort and goat’s beard.
We teach how to prepare and use downy flower heads on our 2 Day & 5 Day Bushcraft Courses, the IOL Bushcraft Competency Course and also our 2 Day & 5 Day Survival Courses. You can see plenty of photos from all of these courses on our Facebook page.
