Two methods to Dry Flower

Author:internet   Time:2009-4-16 16:12:52

Dried flowers are wonderful for year-round floral arrangements. You can dry flowers by hanging them or by placing them in a box of desiccant, which better preserves the blossoms.

Box Method

Step1

Line a box with fine, dry sand, borax or silica gel.

Step2

Place the whole heads of the flowers face down in the box. Dahlias, roses and zinnias dry well using this method.

Step3

Sift more sand or borax onto the flower heads until they are covered.

Step4

Place the box in a warm, dry area for two weeks.

Air-Dry Method

Step1

Pick flowers when their blossoms are half-open, and leave the flowers on their stems.

Step2

Strip the lower leaves from the stems; don't remove the leaves closest to the flower on the stem.

Step3

Gather 8 to 10 stems together, and tie them with string or secure them with rubber bands.

Step4

Hang the bundle upside down in a well-ventilated area. After 10 days (in warm weather), the flowers should be dry. When drying multiple bundles of flowers, leave space between them to ensure thorough drying.
