How long do dried flowers last?
The clue is in our name! If cared for correctly (see below for more), dried flowers can last for many years. As they are a natural product, you may see a slight change in colour over time and the longer you have them - the drier they get. They are a stunning and sustainable alternative to fresh flowers and a great investment.
How do I care for dried flowers?
Follow these tips to keep your dried flowers looking beautiful -
- Keep your flowers out of direct sunlight
- Display in a cool, dry place free from humidity
- Avoid getting your blooms wet, dried flowers do not need any water
- To remove dust or cobwebs gently blow dry on a cool setting
- If you have pampas in your bouquet, you can blow dry it on a cool setting to 'fluff' it up and then apply some hairspray to prevent moulting
- Be gentle with them, they can be quite delicate, so avoid moving them too frequently between vases
- To store any seasonal displays, simply wrap them in tissue or Kraft paper and pop them in your cupboard, loft or anywhere dry until next year!

How do I arrange my flowers?
As with any flowers, you can arrange them how you like. Please see below for some of our top tips -
Arrange your flowers in the vase you would like to display them in. We recommend one with a narrow neck (1-3ins wide)
As with fresh flowers you can trim the stems to suit your vase
Place larger stems (pampas, grasses, palms) at the back to provide structure, medium stems in the middle and smaller stems grouped together at the front
The stems do not need to sit in water or touch the base of the vase so you can simply lift individual stems to the desired height
- You can always add a tie of string or ribbon if you would like more support or the stems closer together
The bouquet pictures on our website can be used as a guide when following the above steps
- Have fun!

How environmentally friendly are you?
Dried flowers are not only stunning, but sustainable too. They last so much longer than fresh flowers (basically forever!) and don't need any water to keep them looking amazing. Growing and shipping fresh flowers consumes a huge amount of energy and water, not to mention the use of chemicals and refrigerated transport required - so we're already ticking lots of environmentally friendly boxes. All of our packaging is also made from recycled (where possible) and recyclable materials.
Do you ship outside of the UK?
Unfortunately we don't at the moment but watch this space!
