To keep enjoying your garden's flowers, consider drying them - Fairfield Citizen
Testing with a few flowers and different drying times may be necessary, however," said Cindy Haynes, an associate professor of horticulture with Iowa State University Extension and Outreach. Silica sand, when used for preserving flowers, tends to be better at retaining their natural colors, but no single process works for all plants, Haynes said.
When using this method, the entire flower head is normally submerged or covered in a box of the silica sand or gel.
"This is often used for delicate flowers that don't respond well to air drying or for flowers for crafts that don't need the stems," Haynes said.
Blooms with a low moisture content, pinecones, seed heads, foliage, grains and grasses are the most popular choices for centerpieces or special occasion use (think wintertime weddings or fragrant Valentine nosegays). Combining their different colors, sizes, shapes and textures results in the best displays.
Certain flowers like globe amaranth, strawflower and celosia have petals that are partially dry at bloom so they dry quickly and retain their shape well during and after the drying process, Haynes said.
"These species and several grasses and grains are often listed on 'flowers for drying' lists," she said. "Other, more succulent flowers, are less successful as dried flowers."
Dried flowers usually are arranged into bouquets, but there are many other applications. Dried plants can be used for cooking (cakes, teas), bathing, paired with cleaning products (delightful scents), attached to homemade cards and parchment paper, and made into dyes, gifts, wreaths, or sachets and potpourri.
Some generic tips for drying flowers:
— Harvest in the cool of the morning, but after the dew evaporates. That prevents mold from developing.
— Flowers that are cut for drying should be almost fully bloomed, according to horticulturists with Johnny's Selected Seeds in Winslow, Maine. "In the weeks when they are drying... Aug 22, 2019

Three-star safety Thaiger Flowers inspired by late mentor
Flowers and more are expected throughout the spring.
"We've had USC, Arizona, San Jose State, Arizona State, Colorado, BYU and Iowa State all come by this spring so far," said Flowers.
Flowers is planning on a couple of in-state camps this summer.
"I plan on going to a UCLA camp at the beginning of June and a Stanford camp mid-June," said Flowers. "I didn't make any trips to any schools for spring ball."
Nevada was the first offer and there is a connection there for Flowers as Nevada cornerbacks coach Courtney Viney is a Fresno native himself and he too was trained and mentored by Perry.
Viney played under Perry at Fresno (Calif.) Edison and with him at DB Guru before Viney entered the college coaching ranks.
So naturally, Viney and Flowers have one of the best relationships, with Perry at the center of it and their Fresno connection also a part of it.
"I have the best relationships with Coach Viney at Nevada and Coach (Sean) Saturnio at Army," said Flowers.
And those schools are among the ones recruiting him the hardest.
"I'd say Army, UC Davis and Nevada are recruiting me the hardest," said Flowers.
Still, with just one option under his belt, he's a ways off from making a decision, let alone naming a favorite.
"Right now, I don't have a time frame for my decision because I only have one offer and I don't have a favorite right now because I'm looking for more offers," said Flowers.
A three-star on 247Sports, Flowers is ranked as the No. 126 safety nationally in the 2019 class.
