If replenishing your lovely display of fresh flowers is proving tricky or hard to justify during the lockdown, it might be time to consider trying dried flowers.
Dried flowers are trending in interiors – handmade marketplace Etsy UK has reported a 93 per cent increase in searches for dried flowers in the last six months – meaning there is a bigger online range to choose from than ever before.
There are many reasons to consider investing in a bunch of dried blooms. They are environmentally friendly, thanks to their low carbon footprint, long shelf life and biodegradability, and low maintenance – keep them away from direct sunlight and don’t put them in water – that’s it!
They should last for at least a year with care, which is good news for your bank balance. If they get dusty, clean them using a hairdryer on a low, cool setting.
