When to Cut Flowers for Drying

You should cut or pick the flowers you want for drying as soon as they come into full bloom. Flowers bloom at different times of the year. You should have no trouble finding flowers to cut from early spring through late summer.

It is best to wait until mid-afternoon to do your cutting. This will ensure that the flower petals are free of dew and are open.

You can choose to cut flower buds for drying, if you like. If you want the buds to open before drying, simply place their stems in water until they open.
