The Sculpture House Dye Garden - May 2023

May 15, 2023

Here's an update on how things are progressing in the Sculpture House Dye Garden this month. The soil is warming up so it's time to plant a few of our dye seeds outside directly into some of the raised beds. Meanwhile some of the seeds we've been growing inside have begun to show signs of life and are sprouting up which is great to see...

French Marigold seeds

Calendula and French Marigold seeds are being planted straight into the soil, rather than being planted in seed trays to germinate on a warm windowsill.

Yarrow seedlings are germinating well on our sunny windowsill in the studio


Japanese Indigo seeds have begun to germinate

Some of our hollyhock seedlings have germinated too, although this whole tray had been planted with seeds, just a handful germinated.

The five raised beds built and filled with soil thanks to the generous funding of Creative Scotland and the Renfrewshire Climate Fund
