How do you preserve flowers?

Preserving flowers is a 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!
