Drying Flowers
The greenhouse has cockscomb celosia, globe amaranth, strawflowers, statice and amaranth for drying.

Harvest your flowers after the dew has dried. 
Remove the leaves form the lower stem.
Tie 5 to 10 stems together with a rubber band.
Choose a place to dry the flowers that is dark and dry.  Air flow or a dehumidifier will speed the process.
Hang the bouquet upside down.
It should take between 24 hours and 2 weeks to dry your flowers.
