Has anyone tried the Lee Valley Microwave Press Kit? It is it even necessary (if it really simplifies the process I am interested)? I am hoping to try drying flowers as I saw some great ideas in the past for them.

I have it and I enjoy using it. I first read about it on this forum.

I've used the method on attached link with good results. I use two shallow Pyrex pieplates and coffeefilters. I also put a Pyrex-cup of water in this in my microwave instruction book..says prevents overdrying of flowers/foliage.

Good luck. josh

RE: Lee Valley Flower Press

Hello Folks!

I am new to the Group here, and I just wanted to tell you how impressed I am with this Garden Web Group Site! The "link" to the Site was sent to me by a relative, because I am wanting to learn how to "Press & dry" flowers. While reading thru some of the Postings, I was able to go into the "Lee Valley" Web Site, & happened to see the "Microwave Flower Press" that Lee Valley had to offer. Thus, I was so "excited" over this "find," that I just ordered me one of these "Microwave Presses" today! I just can't wait until I get it in, and do hope I will be satisfied with it!! I know that a few of you probably have this very "Flower Press," so any feed-back or tips you can give me in regards to it, would be greatly appreciated!

I also ask all of you to please "bear-with-me" as I get "use to" your Group Site here, & figure out how to "navigate" my way around!! I hope to learn much here, as I am a fairly "amatuer" Gardener, & do have so very much to learn ahead of me... I also have very "poor" soil where I live out on my Ranch, so that does not help matters, with me trying to "grow" the simplest of things sometimes.

Happy Spring to all, & I hope to be able to drop in often and post. Please feel free to contact me if you have any good suggestions, tips, or anything of interest.

Regards to everyone,

Does anyone have the instructions still for the Lee Valley flower press kit? I lost my instructions and haven't used the kit in a while….so long I can't recall how long and at what power level I should it into the microwave.
Any help is greatly appreciated!
