Want a pretty garden *and* a completely magical and easy new craft project? All of the plants in this garden are super easy to use as dyes, and are shipped with detailed instructions on how to use them, as well as with a long silk ribbon ready for you to experiment with for your first dye projects.
Here is what is included in this 'dyer's garden' (your a dyer now):
There are six different types of plants (all annuals), and you will receive three of each variety, for a total of 18 plants. The plants will be shipped in the Spring, each in a 2" diameter pot.
Chocolate Lace Flower - Three plants, each in a 2" diameter pot, make it into a rich purple ink.
Black Knight Scabiosa - Three plants, each in a 2" diameter pot, make it into a dusty silver lavender colored dye.
Cracker Jack Hawaii Marigold - Three plants, each in a 2" diameter pot, make it into a rich orange dye.
Cracker Jack Smiles Marigold - Three plants, each in a 2" diameter pot, make it into a vibrant yellow dye.
Dyer's Coreopsis - Three plants, each in a 2" diameter pot, make it into a taupe/dusty orange dye or ink.
Japanese Indigo - Three plants, each in a 2" diameter pot, make it into a dye that fluctuates between aqua and a true indigo depending on soak time.
Planting conditions: Everything here wants regular water, but is drought tolerant, and prefers full sun.
Making a dye from each of these flowers requires no special equipment, just a big pot of water, and some blooms. And we're on hand to answer any questions that come up.
Ships: In the Spring at the right time for planting, blooms all Summer long. Care and planting instructions, as well as detailed instructions on how to use each plant as a dye, and a long silk ribbon for dying, is included.
Flat rate $10 shipping no matter how many plants you buy.
We give your plants plenty of (recyclable) padding so they are cozy and safe during transit. We also monitor weather events and will contact you if unusual weather will impact your order's ship date.
If anything is not right about your plant when you receive it, please let us know and we will make it right.
