Have you always wanted to grow your own colour?


Update 15 June 2022: Oops! We are having some problems formatting the shop page. Please bear with us. You should see four categories of product at the bottom of this page. Once you select a category, if you can’t see the product you want keep pressing the ‘more products’ button. We are grappling with the gremlins and hope to have everything sorted soon. Please contact us if you are having difficulty. Cheers Susan and Ashley


Online mentoring for dye garden design
We offer bespoke tele-support to design and plant a dye garden. Details here
This item is shown as ‘out of stock’ simply because we prefer to understand your needs and agree how to tailor the package before you commit to purchase.



Seeds See below for our range of dye plant seeds. If only one item displays, choose to order by price and all the options should appear.



We regret that we are unable to sell seed outside the United Kingdom. For Europe we recommend Rühlemann’s  and in the USA Botanical Colours



Offer for charities and those on low income. If you are seeking seeds for any charity project in the UK please contact us as we may be able to provide a discount or a donation depending on stock. Likewise if you are on a low income or work for a horticultural therapy or community gardening project and would like help to attend one of our workshops, please get in touch to discuss discounts.



Offer for NHS and care staff We are keen to explore ways in which our dye garden might be therapeutic for people who have been on the frontline of the Covid pandemic in our hospitals and care homes. Please get in touch if you would like to attend any of our events or have other suggestions.



Workshops We have a programme of  in person  workshops in Hitchin during 2022 using an outdoor classroom and kitchen next to the dye garden.  We introduce you to growing and working with the classic and most colourfast dye plants, drawing upon over 15 years’ experience developing a working dye garden. More information on our courses is available here.


Garden visits and plant sales We regret that we are unable to sell dye plants by mail order. However if you sign up for a Garden Visit there are always plants for sale and the ticket price includes one free plant. Garden visits are ticketed events for small groups, lasting two hours including a detailed tour of the dye garden and refreshments.


You can sign up to receive occasional newsletters to get alerts of courses and products as soon as they are available for sale.


We plan to offer a limited amount of dye from our garden for sale shortly. Alternatively, for dye plants we can recommend based in Devon who are very skilled plant dye growers and dyers.
