Preparation for Drying Peony

Drying Peony is fast and easy.   All you need is clippers, an elastic and two hands – well the long stem Peony of course.   Once dried they will look like roses.

Dry them in a cool dark dry spot and the colours will not fade.     You will have enjoyment for at least one year.   When drying they should be up side down so they will dry straight.    When dried I love to put them on top of the China Cabinet.   You know the spot were you hide things and usually has tones of dust – hide it with dried flowers.    The stems are sturdy and they can be laid on their side.    I leave a few inches hanging of the edge and they make a beautiful display of colour.
