I want to send a fresh flower arrangement to my step-brother in London. Can anyone suggest a good online florist?

And if you ever need to send flowers in North America check http://www.onlinefloristreviews.com

Thanks!

I live in France - However I have just had a competition on my UK website and ordered the prize for the winner from www.post-a-rose.com - She was delighted with the flowers, and their service is excellent.

Hope that helps!

It is something I would love to dabble in. Microwave, now that sounds interesting, tell me more please.

How long
Do I treat them with something first

Hi, I am new at trying to make pot pourri, and I put some of my beautiful giant pansies in borax yesterday...read that that was a good way to dry flowers - we shall see...has anyone else done this? I have borax on hand - for my soap making, so that's why I went with this approach. I wonder if it will leave a fine white powder on the flowers that I cannot get off?? I wonder if any borax residue would affect the essential oil in the fixative?

What I would LOVE to know is how to preserve a slice of lime so that it looks pretty, to go in the pot pourri. It would not be just drying strips of peel, which is pretty, but preserving an entire slice. And maintaining a natural product - don't want to use chemical preservative products...just something natural that will make the lime slice continue to look like a lime slice for some time to come!

My middle child attended the Université de Lyon one summer.

The pansies I put in borax powder the other day are drying beautifully BUT they do have fine white powder stuck on them...hopefully when they are completely dry, the powder will shake completely off...maybe I'll try the hairdryer on them, on cool....

hi friends,

I have dried whole roses from my mothers funeral and would like to make a memorial in a glass shadow box, but I am not sure how to attach the very delicate flowers to the cloth covered cardboard backing?

some years ago we used to sell a lot of dry flowers , but now in Italy ( where I have my main market ) dry flowers are selling bad , so we had to switch to other products . Basically I think that dry flowers' sales here have gone low because many flowers do not want / do not have time to do floral arrangements anymore and many shops have converted themselves in selling gift items instead of dry flowers centrepieces...
