Dyers Chamomile (Anthemis tinctoria), gives a soft warm yellow and with ammonia a rich almost golden yellow. Adding iron gives a wonderful soft green. Dyers Chamomile is a nice dye to use to demonstrate with as the colour pours out almost as soon as you put the flower heads in water.
Nothing artificial is added to the garden and the flowers have been dried.
