By Rita Buchanan. Plants grown for use in textiles aren't limited to dye stuffs. In her classic book on growing plants that aid in home textile production, Rita Buchanan covers
- dye plants and general tips on how to use them
- plants with natural soap properties
- plants that can be used for scenting fabrics or protecting them from insects
- plants that can be used to make textile tools
Buchanan's work is not meant to show you what plants make which colors. In fact, there are no color pictures at all. Instead, it is a gardening book that explains how to grow these plants and in many cases, how they can be used.
