Freeze-drying is the best way to preserve them. Next best is using Borax - cut flowers are laid in the Borax then completely covered with it. The container is left in a warm, dark dry area for 10 days then brushed with paintbrush gently to remove powder.

We are flower people in our home. I have found that what works great for our Calla Lilies is to use 1 part sugar to one part vinegar. Something in this keeps them very fresh and is natural.
