don’t forget

to dye with Buddleja (Butterfly Bush) if you have one in the garden or nearby; it gives deep yellow color and can be used both fresh and after the flowers turned grey and are dry. It’s not often mentioned in the books on natural dyeing so I wouldn’t know unless Jenny Dean has kindly mentioned it on her blog some time ago .

there is a purple one in our garden, behind woad which is heavy with seeds this year
