Drying Fragile Flowers

Step 1: Place 1 inch of silica gel in the empty container. Place the different plant parts in the container so that they do not touch each other or the edge of the container.

Note: For hyacinths, lilacs, and daffodils, you will be drying the entire plant intact. For other flowers, separate the flower from the stem, leaving 1/8 inch of the stem attached. In some cases -- for example, peonies -- you will have to separate the foliage from the stem as well.
