Quick tips for drying roses and rose petals

  • Many roses will air dry if gathered in a bunch and hung in a dry, dark place.
  • Some will dry upright in a vase (no water added) if the stems are sturdy.
  • Rose petals can be dried in the microwave between two layers of paper towels.
  • Microwaved roses lose the aroma. Rose petals that are spread out to dry seem to have a better scent.
