On this page you will find answers to questions that we are commonly asked about petals, flowers and our petal samples.
The freeze drying process maintains the original size, shape and colour of fresh petals. Only the best quality petals are used. They are soft to touch, 100% biodegradable and will not wilt or go brown.
We prefer to send the petals for your wedding or event up to 3 months before your big day. This means you can order and receive your items well in advance of the day.
We can however send products at short notice too when necessary – with a next working day delivery option being available Monday to Friday on orders placed before midday. If you order on Friday before midday with next working day delivery, your order will arrive the following Monday.
You can find out more on our Delivery information page.
They should be stored at room temperature, away from moisture and out of light, in their original packaging.
With the exception of the dyed petals, our freeze dried petals will not stain, have no chemicals added and are 100% biodegradable.
The Chelsea blue, Emerald green, Gothic desire and rainbow rose petal confetti have however been dyed, and we cannot therefore guarantee that they will remain colourfast.
Freeze drying is a scientific process in which fresh flowers are frozen, and then the ice (water) is slowly removed under vacuum.
The flowers mostly retain their original shape, colour and size.
Freeze dried flowers are long lasting, environmentally friendly and biodegradable. They are beautiful and can be kept for months.
Preserved in this context means that the flower has been treated by the use of dyes and/or chemicals. The resulting flower requires no water, and will remain beautiful and vibrant for many months.
Preserved flowers and petals should not be used in wet or damp conditions, and may stain fabrics and surfaces.
