Freeze dried petals appear to look like beautiful fresh petals and hold their stunning colour and shape far longer than fresh flowers. During the freeze drying process moisture is carefully removed which dramatically slows down their ageing process, meaning you can enjoy them for longer.

Petals are used for decoration or throwing confetti for special events like luxury weddings, celebrations, proposals, anniversaries, parties, Valentine’s Day and more. Our petals have been featured in Hollywood films, and even luxury hotels.

All the freeze dried petals are biodegradable so you can celebrate your event with peace of mind as the petals will naturally biodegrade when subject to the elements. If you are using the petals outdoors, there is no need to clean up or dispose of the petals, they’re like flowers in a garden.

What to do if your event has been affected by Covid-19

Alternatively if you’ve already received your petals, make sure to store them away from heat, moisture and light. They should last up to 3 months.


The majority of our freeze dried petals are dye-free so they will not stain. The only petals that are dyed to achieve a bright rich colour are: Apple Green, Rainbow, Mulberry and Chelsea Blue, it is possible they may stain light surfaces.

Preserved roses last up to 1 year and require no water or light to remain beautiful and vibrant. These stunning roses are long lasting and are available in a range of colours. The preserving process starts when the flower is harvested at its peak, then plant sap and water are carefully replaced with a specific mixture of plant-based and bio-degradable preservation formula to keep it looking fresh.

Avoid prolonged exposure to direct sunlight. The only care a preserved flower requires is occasional removal of dust, ideally with an air spray, air blower or alternatively gentle dusting with a soft cloth. Due to the preserving process it is possible preserved flowers may stain light surfaces.

These preserved roses are much more efficient than fresh-cut flowers, due to their long shelf life and low energy transport and storage. The result is that the preserved flowers have a carbon footprint significantly lower than for both fresh-cut and artificial flowers. Help protect the environment one rose at the time.

They are also excellent value because of their long useful life.
