These trees were rather young and rather prostrate. However, the fact that they were helpfully labelled made me feel I should take an interest!
I took only a few leaves, which is one of the big advantages of the eco-print technique of assessing dye potential, as India Flint has emphasised.
The grooves on the bud caps are rather lovely, I think. The sample print… not deeply exciting, even with some help from iron!

It’s a good sample to see that one side of the leaf gives more colour than the other, and prints better on the other. Have you tried it on wool?
Not yet! But you’re right on both fronts…
