Queries and Answers: Preserving Flowers


In addition to answering questions on old photographs, I receive inquiries on how to preserve a wide variety of items.

Jennifer wrote: I have two pink roses and a carnation from my grandmother’s funeral in 2006. They’ve been hanging upside down in my closet since then. They still have all of their color since my closet is dark and away from light. Do you have any suggestions on how I can preserve them?

Jennifer’s closet seems like an in-home drying box. This would never work in my closet with all the temperature and humidity changes. I searched the web for an answer and found this article on how to preserve wedding flowers. It’s full of useful tips depending on how Jennifer wants to save those flowers.
