At the moment I don’t have a shopping cart on here so if you would like something please go to my contact page and you can easily get in touch by phone or email with any questions you may have. Payment can be made either by cheque or bank transfer. If you have seen something you would like I will usually send it by second class recorded delivery and obtain proof of posting. Plants are sent first class. If you wish other items to be sent first class, and either tracked or insured I will check the postage cost and let you know. Peg looms may take a few weeks to dispatch as they are generally made to order. Please see below for more information on products and availability.

Hand made paper
Something different for your paper craft projects, some pieces can look good hung in a window for the light to pass through. Available in various colours according to the recipes I’m currently using: every sheet is characterful and unique. As available, to buy at events.
Eco printed & plant dyed silk scarves
Recently I’ve been captivated by the effects of natural dyes on silk and have begun dyeing and printing scarves with local flora. Unique designs are printed with plants onto the silk, leaving a delicate impression of the leaves and flowers used. Other scarves are dyed with indigo and local plants and some are a combination of techniques. Each and every one is different. Hopefully you can see what’s available on my ecoprinted & dyed scarves page, however they sell quickly and the page isn’t always up to date. Please get in touch and I will send images of my current stock, or if you’re in the area you can visit The Cream Chimneys in the square in Kelso and choose your purchase there. Prepared blank scarves are available too for your own designs by contacting me direct. Commissions are welcome.
Dye plants & seeds
Dye plants or seed may be available in season from the following list and can be ordered through this website or purchased from me at events during spring and summer. Plants sent through the post are supplied to order and usually dispatched from late spring to early autumn. Please get in touch to find out more. Mail order prices vary according to pot size; usually a 9 or 10 cm pot from £3.50, packets of seed £1.50 plus P and P at cost. If you are looking for a dye plant not listed, please enquire – I may have it!
Madder – Woad – Weld
St John’s Wort – Sweet Cicely – Tansy
All these plants go especially well in a cottage garden and some are native plants, so good for friendly insects and gardening with wildlife.
