Preserved Flower Care

Preserved and dried flowers can last for years if they are cared for properly. They are very easy to take care of - just follow these five tips to help keep your blooms looking beautiful for years to come!

 

  1. No water - Dried blooms do not like water. None. It makes their stems weak and mouldy. Keep them warm and dry at all times.

  2. Avoid direct sunlight! - Dried flowers will naturally fade over time, particularly if they are kept in direct sunlight. This is part of their charm, to be enjoyed as much as any other time. But to slow the fade, keep them away from direct sunlight.

  3. Be gentle - They are fragile, and become more fragile as time goes on. You may see some fall out from grasses, some petals or some little blooms but don’t despair. Collect these goodies and enjoy them in another way. 

  4. A quiet place - They’re best suited to a spot with little movement or wind. Probably not be best to be placed on a dining table where they’ll be lifted up and down or moved around a lot. They would be better suited to a side table perhaps, a more ‘permanent’ spot.

  5. Good airflow - Ensure good airflow around your blooms and prevent temperature fluctuations & humidity. Dried flowers don’t need airflow directly from an open window, however in a stagnant or damp room they may become moist and mouldy.
