Planting & Care

Soil & Water: Good soil fertility and water will produce a better dye than drier less fertile soil.

Planting & Growing: Scarify the seeds and plant in spring, barely cover, tamp securely and keep warm and moist until germ. which takes 1-3 weeks. Germination is easy and vigorous, and the plant establishes itself and lasts for years in the garden. Space plants 2 to 3 ft. apart.

Harvesting & Storage: Harvest leaves when plant is several feet tall and bruised leaves turn blue. Harvest and make dye the same day.
