Sowing Japanese indigo seeds. And Woad?

※ I am not very good at English, so I apologize in advance.

Spring-like weather continues in Osaka.Every year, I sow the seeds of Japanese indigo on the day of the vernal equinox. However, I am busy preparing for the opening of our shop this year and I can not do it. it’s not a big rule. しが、However, I can not calm myself if I can not do it.  So I got up earlier than usual and decided to sow indigo seeds.

↓This is the seed of Japanese indigo. Every year, I buy online shop.

↓Sprinkle this species in a box of soil. I will plant it in the garden in May.

I planted another kind of plant seeds.  That’s Woad. This is a plant from which blue dye can be taken. I wrote a blog about this plant just a year ago. But が、I could not germinate last year . I will try again!I bought seeds at an online shop, but I received something completely different from last year.

Of course, I order “Woad” last year and this year too. And the package says “Woad”.

↓Last year’s seeds
ひとつ屋染料農園

↓This year’s seeds
植物染料

It also looks different and the size is different.。??????
Last year, I failed to sprout so I don’t know which one is the correct one.
For the time being, I will try to dye something if I grow this seed. Can I dye indigo blue? Please look forward to !


By the way, our shop is preparing to sell plant dyes in full scale soon. It will be a little further, but please look forward to it!
