Dried flower care guide

It’s no surprise that dried flowers are so on trend right now. Who wouldn’t want beautiful florals that last years and years?

Here at DRIED we get a lot of questions about how long your dried flowers will last and how best to care for them, so we’ve put together this dried flower care guide to help you get the most out of your dried flowers. 

HOW LONG DO

DRIED FLOWERS LAST

Dried flowers will last for years if they’re looked after! They are dried, natural products which means that with the right care they will last and last. 

HOW LONG DO PRESERVED FLOWERS LAST?

Unlike dried flowers which have simply been dried out, preserved flowers are preserved to look fresh, keep their shape and last. This is done through a completely natural process. When a flower or plant has reached the perfect size, they're cut. They are then rehydrated using a biodegradable solution that is made from fresh plants. The flower absorbs the solution until all of its sap and water is replaced by it. Now the flower is perfectly preserved to last! 

Preserved flowers can also last for years if properly looked after. 

HOW TO LOOK AFTER DRIED FLOWERS

To look after your dried flowers:

  • Keep away from direct sunlight
  • Keep them away from water
  • Keep them out of humid areas
  • Be gentle - dried flowers can be fragile so make sure to handle with care!
  • Give them a gentle dusting from time to time

Thats how you can care for your dried flowers to expand their lifespan. Taking these simple steps will ensure they bring floral joy to your home year after year!
