Dye Plants

Dye Plants

Early on, people used herbal colours from nature for dyeing and colouring clothes, skin, hair and dwellings. Some plants already start to rub off when touched, so it is not surprising at all that people came up with the idea of using plants, herbal powders, extracts and concentrates for dyeing.

Green manure

Green manure

Green manuring is the deliberate cultivation of specific plant species to increase the quality of the soil. Green manure crops can improve soil structure by producing humus, enriching the soil with nitrogen or make bonded nitrogen available again, loosen and aerate the soil or suppress weed growth. Furthermore, green manure serves to prevent erosion on fallow land and can be used as a means of disease and pest prevention.

Bee Food

Bee Food

For a healthy garden in natural balance we need a varied flora and fauna. Above all, many insects play an important role: some as beneficial insects and others as pests. Bees and bumblebees are among the most desired beneficial insects, and they need melliferous plants to survive.

Oil plants

Oil plants

Oil plants are useful crops whose fruits, plant parts or seeds can be used to obtain vegetable oil.

Organic Pest Control

Organic Pest Control

Organic pest control by using plants can be implemented in two ways: Either pests are repelled by this plant, or they attracted and thus distracted from nearby plants. Responsible for this are fragrances that these plants exude and which act either as deterrent or attractive to the pests.

Fibre plants

Fibre plants

Not only for textiles, but also for paper production various plants were absolutely indispensable before the industrial process of paper production from wood pulp was developed.

Pet food & favourite plants

Pet food & favourite plants
