Buddleia

 

I use Buddleia simply because it is kind to butterflies and bees and because it gives such a great colour. Our own bees love these bushes that grow wild on our side of the hill. It does not require a mordant although I use an old iron nail for good measure!

I use a recipe from Jenny Dean (I can recommend all her works concerning natural dyeing).
