How To Dry Fresh Flowers, According to ‘Full Bloom’ Winner Conner Nesbit

Having fresh-cut flowers on display makes your home instantly feel more welcoming and lively. But, fast forward 10 days and you likely have a sad (possibly moldy) bouquet that brings you down every time you look at it. Instead of letting flowers wilt to the point of no return, you can dry them out, suggests Conner Nesbit, owner of Leuca Floral and winner of season one of HBO’s Full Bloom. “Flowers take on a different personality after they dry, and they almost become a whole new type of flower,” he says. “Right now, the summer flowers dry the best and they’re so abundant. I have a local flower farmer that’s just been bringing me extras weekly because he knows I’ll dry them out; I’ll make wreaths with them in the fall.” In particular, Nesbit loves drying out roses and ranunculus. “There’s lots of echinacea out right now, the pods on those actually dry phenomenally, and you can press the flowers a little bit,” he says. “Cosmos dry really well. There’s yarrow, even summer hydrangeas can dry extremely well.” As you’re picking your flowers, he recommends avoiding water-logged blooms like tulips, orchids, and peonies. “They tend to rot rather than dry,” he says.
