Flower preservation has existed since the beginning of history, although deliberate flower preservation is a more recent phenomenon. In the Middle East, the bones of prehistoric men were discovered with delicate wildflowers, probably in tribute to a loved one passing through. Evidence of deliberate use of specific flowers is indicated by the pollen grains that were present. Bright and vivid flowers have also been found in Egyptian tombs. These flowers were around 4000 years old. In the 16th century, the medicinal nosegays began to give way to the ornamental ones. Flowers have essentially started to be used for decorative purposes such as jewelry, fans, and gloves. In the Elizabethan Age, the once familiar ruff was replaced by soft lacy collars, and bosom flowers also became popular.

From the Victorian era grew the fascination to communicate with the flowers carried in the nosegays. The idea of ​​the language of flowers developed when it was decided that giving and receiving a bouquet of flowers when the flowers themselves make sense, gives much more pleasure.

Drying

One of the first methods of preserving flowers is drying. Many plants retain their shape and color when they are naturally air-dried.

Use of glycerin, making the preserved plant supple and long-lasting. To use this method, plant material needs to be gathered in a fully hydrated state. Water and glycerin are then mixed. The water/glycerin ratio should be 2:1. The water should be lukewarm for better mixing and faster absorption. If autumn colors appear, it may be too late to keep them in glycerin.

Pressing is a very easy way to preserve flowers although the relief is lost and the flowers are flat. Unglazed paper, like newsprint or an old phone book, is best for pressing. The flowers are spread out so that they do not overlap between several layers of newspaper. Additional layers of paper and flowers can be accumulated and then covered with a board or a piece of cardboard before pressing with a heavy object. The time required for drying, depending on the size of the flowers or the content of the fabrics can range from two to four weeks.

Flowers hanging in an airy place

There are several air-drying methods used for different types of flowers. The simplest and most effective way to dry most flowers is to tie them in small bundles with string, raffia or ribbons and hang them upside down, out of direct sunlight in a warm and well-ventilated place.
