Wishing you could preserve the beauty of flowers long after the blooms in your garden or bouquet have faded? You can, with dried flowers! Today, Lisa and Layne are joined by florist Ellen Frost of Local Color Flowers to discuss tips and tricks for creating glorious dried flower arrangements. Ellen offers valuable insights from nearly a decade of drying flowers professionally and an insider’s look at how dried flowers factor into her floral design business. Together, they cover their favorite flower and foliage selections for drying, harvesting tips, and the process for air-drying flowers, plus project ideas and storage suggestions. Listen to the podcast and start dreaming up ways to incorporate “everlasting” dried flowers into your life!

The video version of Lisa, Layne, and Ellen’s conversation featuring a slideshow of the questions discussed will be posted to The Gardener’s Workshop’s YouTube channel, where all “Seed Talk” episodes are organized into a playlist.
