Three years from its first establishment, my dedicated dye garden has finally got the message – it’s growing!
Here are some encouraging photos:
Tansy (flowers- yellow dye):
Woad (leaves – blue dye):
Indigo (leaves – blue dye):
Indigo flowers (not a dye source):
Madder (roots and stems – red/orange dye):
Elecampane (yellow dye and medicinal plant):
Eucalyptus (leaves – green!):
Now, I just need to get into the studio to use these mighty plants!
