Hi, I just stumbled over this post. I'm crazy about dyeing with plants, but I haven't tried vat dyeing with indigo yet (that's still to come). There is a wonderful way to achieve green with reed: Simply mordant with alum, pick the red "flowers" of reed (I usually dye at a ratio of 1:4 fiber to dyestuff), dye as usual. You can see some of my outcomes here: http://www.flickr.com/photos/25894277@N06/2795434059/in/set-72157625113027768 Thats my absolute favorite natural dye :)
