Frequently Asked Questions

I get asked lots of questions about indigo growing & dyeing, so I’ve decided to start posting  some of my answers here.  That said, harvesting, processing, and dyeing keep me pretty busy, so this is going to be a slow-going process.  Please be patient!

Do you have indigo seeds for sale?  When are they available each year?

How do you start seeds?

How do you transplant seedlings?

When are the plants ready for harvesting?

My plants don’t look healthy.  What’s wrong with them?
