How to look after for your dried flowers and make them last forever!

How to look after dried flowers

Dried flowers are a stunning way to add character to your home or interior space. By following our tips your dried flowers have the best chance at lasting a lifetime with you.

At The Copper Rabbit our range of dried flowers are designed to last from 1-3 years, but with the proper care they can definitely last even longer.

Here are our tips to make sure you get the most out of your dried flowers... 

1) Buy from a reliable, sustainable supplier

The key to buying the highest-quality dried flowers is to make sure you purchase from a reliable, and ideally sustainable, supplier. This may mean you pay more for your dried flowers, but you can be sure that the price reflects not only the quality, but the ethics behind your dried flower arrangements. 

2) Always handle with care 

Dried flowers may have been preserved, but that doesn't stop them from needing some TLC. In fact, dried flowers are even more fragile than fresh flowers and will become more so the longer you have them. It's normal to have some fallout from your dried flowers, but taking extra care when unpackaging them or moving them around your home will minimise the amount of fallout they have.

3) Avoid direct sunlight 

Dried flowers will naturally fade over time and we believe this is part of their charm. To make them fade slowly, though, keep them away from direct sunlight.

4) Do not water

Dried flowers do not need any water. In fact, water can actually damage your fried flowers by making their stems weak and mouldy. It is best to keep your flowers dry at all times and in a place with good airflow. 

5) Try not to touch 

Dried flowers are designed for display only, so make sure you keep them out of reach of children and pets. It is also best to try and leave your dried flowers as they are and avoid excessive touching. This will reduce the amount of fallout they have and keep them in perfect condition.
