              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.
                        What setting
                        How long
                        Do I treat them with something first
                        and anything else I would need to know.
                        I will definately have a go.

                            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.

                              drying pansies

                              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....
