Extracting plant DNA

I've encountered continued problems extracting DNA from some plant 
species that is suitable for PCR.  This probably due to carbohydrate 
and/or phenoloic contamination.  Particular problems have been 
encountered with dried samples.  Does anyone have any tricks up their 
sleeve that they would be willing to share.  All comments appreciatted.

Thanks in advance
