Great Book

I have a copy from the Library  ” Dye making with Eucalypts”  by Jean Carman circa 1985 …what a legend this woman is. The book covers every state in Australia and Papua New Guinea,  she has cataloged  each variety ( that she has tried ) and the resulting colour with 3 different mordants . From the information I have gathered so far I have ordered 6 different trees to grow in our garden some from Victoria, Tasmania and  Queensland varieties. I now look at trees in a slightly different light….

Another library book is “The Handbook of Natural Plant Dyes”  by Sasha Duerr this one is full of great information and ideas,   I will have to find this one to purchase (I doubt if  I could find a copy of Jeans book)
