Yes, Is there way to best preserve dried flowers so that they do no fall apart? If so, what do I need to do?

Your question could take on two different meanings; I will try to answer them both. If you are asking how to dry flowers please refer to the link entitled 'How to dry flowers' on the home page. However, I think you are asking once a flower is dried ... how do you maintain it.

'Fall apart' is generally associated with a poor quality dried flower. This usually means that the florals were picked too late in development to have properly dried. In general, keep dried flowers out of direct sunlight and a path where people will not brush against them. In addition, do not place dried florals in the path of forced air heat. The hot, dry air just dries them out too much.

One final note, drieds do not last forever. After two or three years they get 'tired' and probably need replacing.

Hope this answers the question.

Happy Thanksgiving!
