Q: How can I preserve a flower garland?
The best option for preserving a full garland is to use a glycerine solution. This is an extensive yet effective method of preserving the vivid beauty of any decorative plant.
Follow these steps to preserve the garland:
Combine two parts warm water to one part glycerine liquid in a large cooking pan, preparing enough solution to completely submerse the garland. Stir the ingredients well and cook until the liquid drops between 80ºF and 100ºF.
Pour the glycerine solution into a large enough container to fit the garland. Place the garland in the container and ensure it is fully covered. Some plants will float in glycerine—use rocks to hold your garland down.
Allow the garland to remain in the solution for five to seven days. This will give the plants the opportunity to soak in the glycerine.
Remove the glycerine treated garland from the container and hang it to dry in a dark, warm location for two to three weeks.
Once this process is complete you can proudly display your garland without worrying about wilting.
