Do you reckon that is woad Claire? I'd better look up some dye recipes if so.

How kind marc

It will make you smile when I dye my skin blue. The was a woad industry around here in the pas., All we have left is Woad Court and Powder Blue Farm. Perhaps I can revive it if this plant is woad.

It's definitely not evening primrose Hestor, they're are numerous and still at rosette stage at the foot of this one. Sorry the latest pics were no good but imagine the tight green, with a hint of purple, heads of broccoli before they open yellow. You could almost pick these thinking they were broccoli if it wasn't for the lower leaves. 

I haven't noticed the bees on this violet particularly Aliesh but maybe haven't looked at the right time.

3 is maturing, I took some more photos but too blurred to post.

The top now resembles purple sprouting broccoli and I think it will flower yellow. the stems are purple and I think it might be Woad, Isatis tinctoria. I have no record of sowing it but record keeping is a bit lax
