The Art of Drying Plants and Flowers

by Mabel Squires

Almost anyone from the experienced flower arranger to the housewife who is looking for decorating ideas will find this practical book of drying plants a goldmine.

Mrs. Squires has gathered together a multitude of facts and presented them in a-way that shows how pleasurable and profitable drying plants can be. The first part of the book tells what plants will dry well and where to find them. All plants whether growing wild, in the garden or in the tropics are included. A color wheel of plants shows both the variety of colors and of plants available.

Then comes a comprehensive section on picking and drying flowers and foliages, as well as nuts, seed pods and cones. There are detailed charts which give drying times and methods and complete instructions for building, a drying rack. The final and largest part of the book tells the many ways in which dried materials can be used, and here Mrs. Squires' imagination and talent come into full play. She discusses how to put an arrangement together and how to select a suitable container for it.

There is a chapter on period designs of dried plants which includes not only Colonial, Georgian and Victorian styles but also modern and contemporary. Step-by-step photographs illustrate how to make flower prints and plaques and there are many suggestions for using them effectively in the home. A chapter on painting plants shows the delightful effects that can be achieved, especially with holiday decorations when a little white and gold paint and "glitter" will transform an ordinary Christmas wreath into a fairytale creation.

The final chapter is devoted to using dried plants at Thanksgiving and Christmas time. Mrs. Squires takes us through a house, room by room, giving suggestions and instructions for making corsages, table settings, swags, garlands, wreaths and many other beautiful and festive decorations.

Published by Bonanza Books, size 5.5" x 8.25", 258 pages.

Condition - the book is very good, numerous small tears/holes to the DJ.

What's a max bid?
Your max bid should be the highest amount you're willing to pay for an item.
We keep your max bid amount a secret from the seller and other bidders.
Max bidding example:
If a current bid is £20 and your max bid is £30, we bid £21 for you.
If no one else bids, you win and pay £21.
However, if someone else places a bid for £35, you will be out bid and the new highest bid on the auction will be £31. You will need to increase your max bid to more than £35 to be the highest bidder.
