    Dried flower bunches R us :)

    What a month! The world and his wife seems to have discovered our dried flower bunches! Maybe people turn to Autumnal dried flowers and bunches once the colour starts to leave their own gardens? At daisyshop we sell three levels of dried flower bunches – British grown ones we have dried in our own workshop like this gypsophila; British grown ones sourced from our own friendly group of about five British growers that dry them for us, such as our ever popular dried wheat, and imported dried flowers that we have no chance of sourcing from within the UK such as the unusual orange dried flower leonotis.

    Dried flower makes

    I have been making dried flower candles with pressed flowers for the forthcoming December issue of Herbs magazine (the journal of the Herb Society). A lovely way to brighten up your Autumn and Winter evenings! Watch out for these dried flower makes on the blog once they have been published in print.
