One of the things we love most about dried flowers is how easy they are to care for. That's why more and more people are switching over from buying weekly bouquets and houseplants; anyone can take care of dried flowers! 


Once you've chosen your favourite bunch - or a few - make sure you're following our tried and true care guide on how to properly care for your dried flowers:

1. Don’t place your dried flowers in water/damp areas

I know, it can sound obvious - but people still ask! There's no need to add water to the vase you're putting your bouquet in. Please avoid getting your dried floral arrangements wet, it can weaken the structure of the stems and also cause mould. 

 

2. Avoid direct sunlight

This just means that your flowers will fade quicker if they are positioned within sunlight. So find a nice shady spot indoors to increase their longevity. 

 

3. Avoid rearranging and moving regularly

When you first get your bouquet, it's totally fine to jzoosh it into place and make sure it fits your vase, but you don't want to get in the habit of regularly moving your pieces around as they can be fragile and this can cause breakage. So make sure you choose a safe spot to admire them from.

 

4. Lightly dust as needed

Like any home décor that’s sitting on a shelf, your bouquet may gather dust. My personal favourite method is using a hair dryer on a low/cold setting and lightly running it over. You should only need to do this every 3-6 months, or as needed.
