Eight Flowers for Drying

Thursday, September 3, 2015 @ 09:09 AM

Think ahead for dark winter days, and preserve some later summer flowers and grasses so that you can have pretty arrangements around the house to cheer your way :)

The easiest method for drying flowers is simply using air. Tie the prepared flowers into small bunches using a slipknot so you can tighten with the minimum disturbance as the stems shrink. Hang the bunches upside down in an airy place, preferably dim and shady, until the flowers are dry.

My favourite 8 flowers for drying

  • Hare’s Tail Grass


  • Honesty


  • Nigella


  • Sunflower


  • Straw Flower


  • Yarrow


  • Lavender


  • Globe Thistle


Have a go and let me know how you get on…
