Ivy berry harvest

Ivy berries

Ivy (Hedera helix) berries are ready at this time of year and produce a range of slightly odd variable colours but I like to gather a few to play with to see how they come out. They contain saponins which are poisonous if eaten and can be irritating if handled a lot. However they are an intriguing addition to the dye pot and still deserve some research.
