Several years ago I grew a natural dye garden. It even attracted a pair of praying mantis which kept the garden bug free. I wouldn't grow any plant that can be readily gathered from wild.

Real nice. Should be good when the Yellow Sallies are about.
In ancient times, cats were worshipped as gods; they have not forgotten this.

Some dye plants are well worth the trouble but gathering dyes from the wild is lots of fun.

The only three I have used are:
Mullein - yellow.
Beets - scarlet/red.
Black walnuts(now is the time) - browns.

I would like to try this pattern with mullein dyed hackle, to see how well it would stack up - all flies pictured have a very nice hue....
