Item details

Garden ready Woad (Isatis tinctoria) and Madder (Rubia tinctorum) plants raised from our own seed. Woad is a biennal - harvest the leaves (you can get several crops) in the first year for dyeing (blues and greens - overdyed with any yellow - see our leaflet for a simple method) and the seeds the following year. Madder roots can be harvested for dyeing (oranges, reds, pinks) after 3 to 4 years and if you leave or replant sections of the root you can maintain your plants for the future.
Flax (Linum usitassimum) seed is from our own stock of long flax fibre plants, sow in spring in a block, for a beautiful patch of rippling blue flowers that you can harvest and process into linen and/or keep for seeds.

My woad is growing. !!!. Great dispatch and packaging of delicate plants. Happy with everything. Thanks so much, including your patience with my lack of understanding and confusing emails. ☺❤
