Dry flowers have been used as commercial art for many years, with an immense business enterprise throughout the world. Beautifully arranged dried flowers may be a little bit pricier, but they are quite long-lasting and can last for many years. The dry flower industry is offering a big opportunity for the national economy in diversified dimensions by creating job opportunities and entrepreneurial development. Dry flowers are modest, extensive and hold their aesthetic worth regardless of the period. Air drying, press drying, embedded drying in desiccants, hot air oven drying, microwave oven drying, glycerine drying and skeletonization are among the techniques used to create dried appealing plant material. The dried flowers obtained using the aforementioned drying procedures can be used to make a variety of value-added products, including greeting cards, photo frames, tablemats, coasters, wall hangings, landscapes and different types of flower arrangements.
