Preserved nature: how to create long-lasting floral art with your favourite plants and flowers
Preservation is a completely natural technique that is applied to freshly-cut flowers and plants to maintain their beauty and colour intact for a long time.
The preservation process for plants and flowers is carried out in the following way: The plants are cut when they are at their most beautiful. Then, the stems are submerged in a liquid that contains glycerine and other 100% plant compounds. The plants absorb the liquid through their stems until the sap is completely substituted by the liquid. Once the conservation process is complete, any possibly damaged petals or leaves are removed in order to obtain a product with the same texture, colour and beauty as fresh flowers.
The preservation process allows flowers to be conserved for a long time. This means that apart from being excellent value for money, they have endless possibilities for interior plant and floral decoration and for making floral compositions of all kinds.
Now that you know how to preserve flowers and plants… You’ll be excited to try it out! However, from Verdissimo, we recommend as preservation experts that you buy preserved products to make any accessories, to guarantee that the products will last and, above all, that they’re high-quality.
