So how do preserved flowers work?

When you first see my preserved flowers in person, you’d be forgiven for thinking they’re simply beautiful freshly cut flowers. And that IS how they start life, before each handpicked stem is placed into a sugar-like mixture for 7-20 days, while the liquid slowly replaces the natural sap. A few days later they’re rinsed, dried, and ready to be used in exciting new floral designs!

I source the highest quality flowers and organic roses from Ecuador, Europe, South Africa, Thailand, Japan, and China, using boat transportation wherever possible to reduce the carbon footprint. Of course, preserved blooms in themselves are a fantastic ecofriendly alternative to cut flowers, which die very quickly and need to be replaced weekly.


If carefully looked after, your preserved flower arrangement should last between 1-3 years. As they’re 100% natural, you just need to follow a few simple guidelines to keep your flowers looking their best for as long as possible:

  • Only display indoors, at room temperature and away from sunlight and high humidity

  • No watering is required - and make sure everyone in the house knows this as it will damage the flowers!

  • As unbelievably real as they are, avoid touching the plants - moisture from your skin can alter their colour and shape

  • If dust collects after a few months, gently remove it by using cool dry air or a soft brush

  • Although the stems will remain flexible, preserved flowers are delicate beauties, so don’t try to move the arrangement around or pull the stems out

Follow these guidelines and your preserved flowers will give you years of enjoyment!
