It’s time for our popular florist contest, so we met up with Mathias and Michaela of Florale Welten in Berlin. The challenge required the use of fresh and dried flowers in any colour combination. Mathias went for the Indian Summer look whereas, Michaela wanted to convey a North Sea breeze. René was charged with the difficult job of judging these two masterpieces. Who will win this challenge...?

Unlike their fresh friends, dried blooms do not like water. None. It makes their stems weak and mouldy. Keep them warm and dry at all times.

Air drying is the simplest way to preserve your cut flowers. Gather the flower stems into small bunches, about a ½ inch in diameter, and wrap them tightly with a rubber band. The stems will shrink slightly, so make sure the band is tight. Hang the bunches, upside down. Keep them upside down so that the stems don’t bend from being top-heavy.

Pick flowers just before they open up. They will continue to open as they dry and may lose petals if fully mature.
