Tell me about drying lavender for a sachet???
Yes, I know it's too late for this year, but I thought over the winter I'd sew up some sachet bags to fill with lavender for gifts next year. I do grow lavender and have dried it on the stem by hanging upside down in a cool dark place.
To use for a sachet, at what point should it be picked? When the flowers first open, or more mature? Should I dry the flowers on the stem, or remove them when picked and dry off the stem?
Thanks for any suggestions.
