Estil Home - Our results from drying methods
We trial and test flowers all the time,
we will update this list periodically with what has worked really well for drying and preserving and what was not so great
common reed - Needs to be sprayed regularly to reduce shedding.
magnolia leaves - can be brittle
Strawflower - Wired ( when we trialled natural stem drying they wilted when the humidity changed, wire them before you dry them - their sap sticks to the wire)
Vase and water method
golden cane palm
we have high-quality control testing and want your blooms to last so here are some of the varieties we arent quite sold on yet for longevity.
Wattle - Dried well but super brittle
Protea leaves - turned Black
Waterfall - Dried but very brittle and fuff falls off plume on touch - preserving had a similar result.
Bullrush - Dries well - however, touch the flower head the wrong way and POUFF! it explodes fluffy seeds everywhere.
Leucadendrons - Very brittle after drying
Prone to wilting in the humidity
preserved billy buttons
Preserved babies breath
