Things To Know About Drying Roses

When it comes to the planting and maintaining of roses, there are many different issues that need to be properly understood in order for the roses to be able to strive properly and be healthy and beautiful, and the matter of drying roses is one of great importance in this regards. If you also want to know something about garden Bark, the supplies of Bark or compost, you can check online.

Drying roses is a great method that you can use in order to preserve their beauty, however if you are interested in drying roses then you are going to have to make sure that you learn how to do it properly before you actually attempt it. 

The first thing that you are going to have to learn about when it comes to drying roses is the matter of what type of technique you are going to use, and air drying and sand drying are the two most commonly used techniques. Air drying is the easiest and as well requires the least amount of time to complete, and requires only a good pair of shears, some wire, a coat hanger and a dark dry location. With this technique, you begin by cutting the stem from the rose, as close to the head as you can possibly get, and then you want to insert a piece of wire about 6 or 8 inches long into the rose head.

When you are drying roses, you need to make sure that they are upside down, and so you want to take the end of one wire and wrap it around the bottom part of the hanger that you have, and then continue to wrap the wires of each rose until the hanger is full; just make sure that you leave some space in between each rose so that the air can circulate around them. As well, roses can be hung in bunches upside down from a nail, but just make sure that you leave the stems intact, remove the bottom leaves, and gather a few stems together and hold with an elastic band, and then place them in a dark and dry area until they are completely dried.

Once the roses are dried completely you can basically do whatever you want with them, for instance you can keep them in a memory book or in a picture frame that you hang somewhere in your house for everyone to see. Just make sure that wherever they are they are not going to get broken, and so if you have children you do not want to put them anywhere within their reach.
