Sea lavender is hardly changed by drying
This summer I hung up some sea lavender (limonium) stems to dry in our workshop. I chose them to dry because I had heard they were easy, and seen some wedding bouquets with sea lavender this year. It turns out you can hardly tell the difference between the fresh and dried flowers!
I chose both pink and lavender colour flowers to dry and hung them upside down in bunches of just a few stems tied with an elastic band. Our workshop is warm and dry and the bunches were touch dry in about a week. I left them hanging for about another month, simply because I was busy with other projects.
From a distance the flowers are a bit like gypsophila (baby’s breath), with tiny flowers held on strong stems. The closer you look at them the prettier they are, and I couldn’t resist taking a few close up photos.
I am so pleased with these dried flowers that they are now available to buy online at daisyshop.co.uk
