By and large, it is best to pick youthful blooms (ones that are not totally open) since blossoms keep on opening amid the drying procedure. On the off chance that you pick a blossom at the time that it looks culminate, it will keep on opening while drying, abandoning you with a bloom past that ‘impeccable stage’. The vast majority pick blossoms past the point of no return. For instance, have you ever observed a really dried rose? On the off chance that you truly take a gander at it, the blossom is still genuinely shut. Abstain from reaping blooms excessively develop being developed. Such blooms will for the most part shed after going and won’t hold away well in courses of action.

* Second: Preserving Flowers

With just a couple of special cases, we air dry every one of our blooms. We straightforward hang bloom bundles topsy turvy on wire (more than two miles of it is extended in our around 1860 outbuildings).

3) How to Dry Flowers with Silica?

Silica-gel drying is done in shallow, water/air proof, plastic (or glass) holders or plate. I dry numerous blooms on the double utilizing a 10-by 18-inch sealed shut plastic compartment. Yours need not be that huge, but rather ensure that the blooms aren’t swarmed. Spread the blossoms out, face up, on a 1-inch (least profundity) bed of gems. Deliberately spoon or sprinkle more silica on top until you’ve totally secured the blossoms with at any rate another inch of precious stones. Drying blooms with single-petal structures, for example, daisies, facedown is another procedure, yet my outcomes have been indistinguishable utilizing both methodologies. To dry blooms facedown, make a little hill for the blossom head, put the bloom head facedown on it, and include silica over the bloom until it is secured. Blossoms can be practically touching, and on the grounds that comparable sorts of blossoms dry at a similar rate, you may wish to amass comparable sprouts in a similar compartment. Seal the holder, and don’t bother it for three to four days.

To dry with sand, put an inch or two of sand in a holder; scoop away a little measure of sand to frame a discouragement at first glance; put the bloom head upright in this dejection and press the sand in and around the outside of the blossom to bolster it. Next, scoop a little sand into your hand and permit it to stream in a fine stream around every petal. Begin with the external petals and work internal column by line, permitting the sand to develop similarly on all sides of every petal so its position and shape are not modified. Blooms dried with sand are delicate so be extremely watchful while expelling them from the sand. See that blossoms must be put away in a solid container to shield the petals from breaking.
