Be careful growing wode. My wife out some in the front, then after a few years decided that she didn't want it and pulled it out. It took another 4 years of pulling I out to be rid of it.

Nettles will yield a dirty green, most things will yellow. The expert is Jenny Dean. www.jennydean.co.uk. You could join the Guild of Weavers, Spinners and Dyers.They have an on line group. You may learn more than you really want to know :)
