I have some wonderful poeni roses . they are now being to drop their petals and I would like to dry and use them for potpourri.
How do I dry just the petals of flowers, to use in potpourri?
Spread a piece of muslin, or cheesecloth on a rack (like a cake cooler), and scatter petals over. DO NOT put it in the sun, they will all fade to the same wishy washy colour. Dry them inside in an airy place.
Reply:Use a window screen or make a bed of some kind that will allow air to flow through. Spread out the petals and let them dry in the sun. Stir up as needed. Keep from getting wet.
