Woad (Isatis Tinctoria), Dyers woad or glastum produces a blue dye from the leaves.
Woad is one of the easiest blue plants for natural dyers to grow at home as they don't need as much care and protection as the Indigo plants.
In Australia, the seeds can be sown in late winter and spring.
Place the seeds in pots or tray and place them about 5cm in the soil and cover with more soil. The seeds should start germinating within 1-2 weeks. They should be about a foot space apart if you are planting in the ground. The plant thrives in areas of full sun. The plant produces bright yellow flowers and the leaves are ready for harvest when they are about 15cm in length.
This pack contains 50 seeds.
