Dye Garden Starter Kit - 7 popular dye plants for you to grow this year
I’m thinking about bringing back dye plant seeds to my shop this year again. Would anyone be interested in starting their own small dye garden? Last year I offered Marigolds, Weld, Chamomile, Coreopsis, Madder, Hollyhock and Woad. I also wrote a small ebook about growing these 7 plants that you can buy separately on Etsy if you have your own seeds. Seeding season is around the corner so let me know what you think. All you need is a spot exposed to sun and as much space as a small balcony, which worked just fine for me.
My last year crop was a partial success (with some plants being unfortunately eaten prematurely by a dog I was sitting). But I saved a few of them and they made lovely colors. There is nothing like growing pigment from the very seed! And now that the days are getting only longer, I can’t wait for spring to come again (or is that too early to hope for that??) 🌱
