An ancient craft which uses flowers and leaves
Images from RBGV
Don't let the flowers in your garden go to waste. Learn to transform them into aromatic, long lasting pot pourri that's kinder to the environment. This ancient craft that uses flowers and leaves to perfume the home has evolved since moist pot pourri was made by salting petals in large crocks till they dried out. Curing them with herbs and spices made for a subtle perfume that was long lasting. However, its appearance was less attractive than that of dried pot pourri.
