Tips on how to dry your flowers and shipping.

In the picture is a white rose that was hung in a kitchen, in front of a shaded window. It dried with a slight yellowish tint.

Hang flowers individually upside down or place them spaced out on a paper towel in a dark, dry, warm location. Hanging the flowers in bundles or touching can cause them to mold and turn brown. (If flowers are received with mold they will be discarded immediately). Drying times vary depending on the flower, it could take a couple of weeks to completely dry 100%. There is a baking technique to speed up the drying process, contact us for more information.

Please keep in mind: Light color roses can dry their true color or tan. Red roses can dry their true color, dark red/burgundy or a tan/brown. It all depends on how the petals are handled, the oils from our hands can change the dried color in all petals.

Once dried, as you handle the petals they can crumble into tiny pieces while others may form into a crushed powder. THIS IS OK, I actually crush the petals to create the beads.
