View Full Version : Gt reed mace/Bullrush
I have thousands of the seed heads from Great reedmace where I work (The ones that look like a sausage on a stick)
Do these work as a good tinder? if so how do you prepare them?
Take a look here....
Thanks for that!
Pesky common names!
I presume I compress the open seed head, not as it is?
You can just use it as fluff, rather than the whole thing. It tends to "flash" - burns very quickly. SO its best mixed with something that will also catch easily, but burn for a little longer. - I use rosebay willow herb and thistle heads mixed with it. But whatever fluffy stuff you come acros on your wanderings.
PS - don't ask me how, but i believe you can make a flour out of the seeds themselves somehow ?
