  1. hi, (unfortunately) I have all these plants growing on my property…
    although I do see that the birds enjoy the unpicked blackberries all winter long…
    do you have any on-line instructions how to prepare the ivy and iris for a weaving project?
    thanks P.

    • HI Patsy, stay tuned, these documents are something we do plan on developing and posting over the coming months. You are not alone with the invasives being all over your property! Alas, the berry feasting is double edged- yes it provides food for the birds during winter months, but also spreads the seeds!
