Dye Garden Manual
(an eBook covering cultivating 7 popular dye plants)

This is a listing for my Dye Garden Project Manual sold as a digital file.
If you can't import the seeds from EU, you can purchase this file and order seeds directly from your country.

Dyeing with plants is an old craft which is becoming popular again. I myself got into botanical dyeing 2 years ago and have been experimenting with local fresh plants a lot since then. I tried so many plants from my local park already that I've decided to go a step further and start my own Dye Garden Project. I'd like to invite you to take part in it and share your experiences with the community!

This digital Project Manual will provide you with following info:
- Requirements for the seeds to germinate and grow
- Cultivation tips
- Harvesting tips
- Recipes for extracting pigments from plants.

Which plants are covered? 7 popular dye plants with a great dyeing potential (hardiness zone info in brackets):
- Chamomile (3-7)
- Weld (5-9)
- Coreopsis (6-9)
- Marigold (6-9)
- Madder (5-9)
- Hollyhock (3-9)
- Woad (6-9)

All plants can survive in hardiness zones 6-7, most of them tolerate zones 6-9. Please check your climate zone before ordering to avoid disappointment.

The plants I chose can get you a full rainbow of colours after dyeing and overdyeing fabrics.
