What are Preserved Flowers and Foliage?

These were live flowers, grasses, leaves or tree foliage (conifer, eucalyptus etc) that have been grown and harvested specifically for preserving.  To get the best results the flowers or foliages are selected when they are at their peak of natural beauty.  Verdissimo have developed their own process of preserving so that the products keep their 'fresh cut' state (soft to touch) using glycerine and dyes which replaces the plants natural sap.  As the products are natural they may vary in size, shape and colour thus keeping the natural fresh look. 

Care Details

In general preserved plants and flowers are very easy to care for and with very little attention they should give you many months or years of pleasure, however they hold no guarantees. For best results we suggest you follow these guidelines: 

Most preserved plants and flowers are for indoor use only and should be stored and used in temperatures between 5deg and 25 deg C. Conifers will tolerate exterior use during the summer months but will need to be taken indoors during the winter. 

Avoid areas of very high humidity for prolonged periods. Palm leaves will tolerate up to 65% humidity but come with no guarantees, other flowers and foliages will need a lower level of humidity. Do not clean preserved flowers with water or liquid cleaning products. Regular light dusting is the best method of cleaning. Palm leaves can be wiped with a damp cloth and conifers can be washed with water.The natural oils in preserved flowers may causes staining if left in contact with polished surfaces or fabrics for prolonged periods.
