How to Care for your Dried Royal Velvet Lavender Flowers
Dried Royal Velvet Lavender flowers are a traditional choice for floral arrangements. Keep your dried Royal Velvet Lavender in great shape with these handy tips for unpacking your order when it arrives and storing for the future.
Shedding buds: Dried lavender plants will commonly lose buds during transport! Don’t stress – this is very normal! We suggest you gather up any lost buds and other lavender material and store it in an airtight jar for future use. We include an empty glass bud jar for every order of 40 bundles or more.
Storage: If you aren’t planning on using your lavender right away you can leave it in the box until you’re ready. We ask that you carefully inspect your shipment at least once upon arrival. Store the box in a cool location out of direct sunlight until you are ready to use it.
