Drying roses.

How do I dry roses and create drying roses?

Unfortunately, there are no roses that last forever. Our roses, like the Red Noami, can be in the vase for a little over two weeks, but not for months or even years. Fortunately, there is a possibility to have your favorite flower in the vase forever. You can dry our roses. To keep them as a reminder of a special moment, such as your wedding or the farewell of a loved one. Drying roses is a wonderful way to create a memory that will last for years. In this blog, we share two ways to dry roses.

1) Dry roses on a clothesline:

Prior to drying:

  • Wait until the bud of the rose has fully emerged;

  • Choose the roses with the most beautiful flowers;

  • Remove the ugly and damaged leaves from the stem (leaves also retain moisture and make the roses less likely to dry);

  • Cut off the stems. Leave about 15 centimeters of the stem;

  • For drying, choose a cool, dry, dark and ventilated area.

Until the bud of the rose has fully emerged treat the roses as in our provided care tips. Do not forget to use a clean glass vase with clean (lukewarm) water. You may also add flower food (included) to your vase to give the buds a chance to fully open.

Drying the roses:

  • Tie a thin string or rubber band around the end of the stem of each rose. Make sure the stems extend at least 5 inches below the string or rubber band;

  • Hang the rose or roses upside down. You can use a clothesline, coat hanger and/or drying rack for this purpose, for example;

  • Let the roses hang upside down for two to three weeks until they are completely dry;

  • Then spray unscented hairspray over the dried brittle roses to prevent petal fallout;

  • Let the roses rest for three days;

  • Spray hairspray over the roses again and let them rest for another three days;

  • Repeat this operation again and your dried roses are ready.

2) Dry roses with a drying product:

  • Wait until the bud of the rose has fully emerged;

  • Choose the roses with the most beautiful flowers;

  • Remove the ugly and damaged leaves from the stem (leaves also retain moisture and make the roses less likely to dry);

  • Cut off the stems. Leave about 5 inches of the stem;

  • Prepare an airtight container where the roses with a 5cm stem can fit upright;

  • Choose a desiccant: such as borax, cornmeal, alum, silica gel or sand. A desiccant has a sandy texture and absorbs the moisture from the roses, so they dry quickly and evenly;

  • Put 5 inches of desiccant in the container.

Again, until the bud of the rose has fully emerged treat the roses as in our provided care tips.

Drying the roses:

  • Place the roses in the desiccant in the container. Push the stems into the desiccant so that the roses remain standing with the flowers facing up;

  • Are you drying multiple roses in the container? Then make sure there is 2-3 inches of space between the roses;

  • Cover the buds of the roses with the drying product. Use, for example, a cup to pour the desiccant over the flowers. Make sure the desiccant falls well between the petals;

  • Close the airtight container tightly;

  • Write the date, when you put the roses in the container, on the container;

  • Leave the roses in the airtight container for 1-2 weeks;

  • Remove the roses from the container and shake off the desiccant. Grasp the roses by the stems and shake off the excess desiccant until the drying roses are completely dry;

Dry roses, unlike fresh roses, retain their beauty forever. With a little patience, you can keep your beautifully dried roses in the vase and treasure them forever. Remember that when you start drying roses, your first attempts will not be perfect. So keep trying and discover the art of drying roses. Also note that red roses become slightly darker after drying, less intense. And pink roses become a little more pale when dried.
