What do I need to press flowers?
Flower pressing is very simple. The most common method is to put flowers between two sheets of paper and press them down with a heavy book. However, it is worth remembering that some species may discolor in this way and lose their original charm. You should also make sure that the paper is changed regularly, otherwise mold may develop on the plants. A specialized press is best for drying flowers.
