drying Love Lies Bleeding

michelehope(3)August 13, 2009

Hi there!

I would really like some advice/instructions as to how I can dry Love Lies Bleeding. This is the first year that I've had success with it, and would like to preserve it for decorations. Thanks so much, Michele

It air dries nicely. If you have the classic form, with the "trailing" flowers that flop down, the easiest nethod is probably to stand the cut stems in a dry vase in a warm, darkish area. You can also hang it upside down as you would a lot of other dried flowers -- simpler in a way if you are drying lots of different flowers. In addition to use in bouquets, these can be an effective element in wreaths.
