In the 1930s, many tons of damsons were picked and transported into Lancashire for jam manufacture and, it is said, for dyeing in the textile trade. Does anyone have information about the use of damsons in dyeing, particularly where they were used and on what items?

Has anyone grafted damsons to dwarf rootstock? If so, how successful was it, which technique was used, and when in the year was it done?
