How to keep your flowers looking gorgeous
How long your dried flowers last depends mostly on how you care for them. Here are a few points to consider.
Dried flower arrangements do best when they are protected from the elements. Using them outdoors is fine and they will look fabulous but be wary of them becoming wet
To avoid fading colours and the petals becoming brittle keep them out of direct sunlight for prolonged periods of time
Preserved foliage and flowers can leach dye over time so be very careful when leaving them in contact with a surface. They need to be kept at a temperature of between 5 and 25°C and do not like sudden changes of temperature
When being stored, areas of high humidity and exposure to moisture are best avoided as this can cause flowers to wilt and encourages mould
Use the storage box provided when your flowers are not on display. Never store your flowers in plastic bags or containers
