How to dry celosia flowers

Want to enjoy those celosia flowers all winter? You can if you dry them! Harvest flowers in the morning after the dew has dried. Look for mature blooms that haven’t set seed. Cut the longest stems you can and place them in a bucket of water until you return indoors.

Bundle six to eight stems together with a rubber band and hang upside down to keep the stems straight in a warm, dry location, such as an attic. To help preserve the color, the less light, the better. Space bundles to allow good air circulation and avoid mold. You should have dried blooms in about a month.
