HEIRLOOM Our dear friend Jeanne Cease loves to dye and this is the most concentrated, compelling indigo she’s found. Indigo is easy to grow, leaping out of the ground to quickly outcompete weeds. You can easily harvest two successions of leaves each season, even three if you’re committed. It’s rich indigo hues are a dream to work with.
Our indigo is in the buckwheat family and may re-sow itself in your garden; another reason to harvest it for dye, preventing it from going to seed!
