Who has experienced drying flowers here? Any techniques to share?November 7, 2019 at 8:38 pm ReplydenisePrivate messageGreenhorn
The easiest way, taught by my elementary grade teacher when I was a kid, is to press the flower like by inserting it in a book. This technique does not really retain the vibrant color and form. You cannot dry more flowers at once either.
What my grandma does with roses is air-dry them. She ties fresh flowers but not yet fully-bloomed in bunches and hang them upside down. If you have quetions regarding this, I could surely ask her and write her answers her. 🙂 I have roses in my garden but I don’t dry them. I just like them when they are fresh in the vase.November 7, 2019 at 8:58 pm ReplyLannie_19Private messageGreenhorn
You can also use microwave to dry flowers. I guess you’re also surprised to know this, the same reaction I had when I first heard about it? Curious, I tried and it worked. 😉November 8, 2019 at 2:08 pm ReplyRosalynPrivate messageExpert gardener
Oh, great ideas! I’ve been wanting to try drying hydrangea flowers. Every summer, our plant generously blooms and would like to keep some indoor like what I see in magazines. Just wondering.. should it be hanged in a cool temperature or anywhere in the house is fine?December 3, 2019 at 2:19 pm ReplySweet ZoePrivate messageGreenhorn
I think anywhere in the house is fine. I tried hanging roses in the kitchen and it worked just fine.
