    To get dried flower you should use this method correctly. First of all fill sends with half inch layer on sturdy box, after that place the flowers or foliage stems on the sand. then slaowly add send in that box till flowers get compleetly coverd. after 2 weeks when flower get dry allow send to pour out from a corner, then clear the flower with stream of sand. And you will get your dried flower to use.

    save the bulbs and plant them outside in the spring. tulips are like weeds. once you get them started you can't get rid of them!

    find yourself a sturdy box and pour about an inch of silica sand in the bottom. then place the flowers or foliage stems on top of the sand. pour more sand over top of the flowers from a cup or can so that it gently flows around, under, and over each part of the flower, until the flower is completely covered. as you pour the sand, use a pencil or small paintbrush to carefully support the flower and to get the sand into the corners. after about two weeks, when the flowers are dry, tip the box to allow the sand to slowly pour out of one corner. lift the flower in the same direction in which the sand is flowing, so as not to damage it. i love this process. they will last for a good year after you have done this.

    I want to try it on my tulips to preserve them since they are beginning to fade, but am not sure how to go about it!
