This year has been particularly challenging for all local gardeners and the Natural Dye Garden has needed plenty of care and attention.   Despite the difficult conditions, the beds have thrived and have produced a wonderful display of colourful plants that have attracted plenty of bees and butterflies as well as creating a lovely addition for visitors to the National Wool Museum.  


This year's plants include Dyer's Chamomile, Dyer's Coreopsis, Rudbeckia, Delphiniums, Golden Rod, Marigolds, Phuopsis, Heather, Woad, Weld, Achillea, Dahlia and Madder.   Different parts of the plants are used to produce the dyes.  Please see The Dyeing Process page for more information.
