FAQS about dried flowers
Do dried flowers need water?
Where is the best place to put my dried flowers?
How do I look after dried flowers?
How long do dried or preserved flowers last?
If you look after your dried and preserved flowers, they can last a long time looking their best - up to a year or more. Make sure they're kept cool and away from sources of direct sunlight or heat. Dust them gently, and store them in similar conditions and your flowers will look good for much longer.
Flowers that have been dried will generally last longer than preserved ones. Preserved flowers usually go through a drying process using fluids like alcohol, and then have a colour applied. This reduces their lifetime in comparison, but only slightly.
How to display dried flowers?
The next step is finding the right spot for them. Here it's key to find somewhere in your home that doesn't get direct sunlight - we know they look glorious in the sunshine, but this will cause them to become brittle over time. Similarly, avoid putting your flowers near sources of heat like open fires, woodburners and radiators. You also don't want it in the path of a doorway or window that gets draughty, as the changes in temperature will weaken the flowers.
