Dye Gardens

A friend had recently been to see Jane Austen's House Museum in Hampshire and could report that the museum had recreated the dye garden. Was this common practice in country cottages, even though the residents of the house had no connection to the dye trade?

We would like to know more about this and a quick Google search didn't bring up much. So if you know more about residential dye gardens or know about other places where they have been kept or recreated please do comment and let us know!
