If you like gardening and you like dying, this book is for you. A Dyer’s Garden, by Rita Buchanan, is a fantastic resource for information on how to grow and use natural dyes. Buchanan discusses growing v. finding dye plants, how and when to harvest them and ways to make your dyes go farther. It would be a great place to start for someone who has never used plant dyes before. She talks about not only the dyes, but what it means to use them with different mordants or fibers and even how to properly dispose of the excess dye.
