|New dye garden|
I had some indigo plants in here last year but they didn't flower in time to survive the frosts.
|Woad nearly in flower|
|Daffodils in soak|
Below is a flower on the quince tree I planted last year which is in the same flower bed.
I have been collecting daffodil flowers from various family member's gardens. These have been in soak for a couple of days in an aluminium pan and a good colour is developing. So watch this space for the results. I don't have a lot of dye so will probably just try some threads.
Dandelions will be next, they are taking over my lawn, and then I want to try Rosemary of which I have loads. I have lots of flowers in the garden which I want to try, dark colour tulips worked well last year, as did blue iris and a shrub whose name has completely escaped me at the moment.
