My tips and recipes
I’m always experimenting with flowers from my own garden
Welcome to Dried Flower Craft, the home of modern dried flowers.
I’m Ruth and I’ve been working with dried flowers since 2003. Every week I’m trying out more dried flower craft projects – dried lavender and roses in abundance!

Ruth’s dried flower craft blog and business – What people say
Ruth Ridley turned a love of horticulture into a sweet-smelling career.
Since we received the dried flowers from Daisy Shop, the chateau has been filled with beautiful aromas, delicate colours and textures. We were so impressed with how well the flowers travelled, the speedy and helpful service and the huge variety on offer. We used Daisy Shop for our first wedding at the chateau to create a vintage flower look and we will definitely be using them again. Can’t recommend them highly enough.

When you explore Ruth Ridley’s dried flower craft blog, there are a few surprises to be had. With a solo mission to combat the dusty association that dried flowers have with the 70s, she examines numerous ways with the dried buds. Be it in potpourri, aromatherapy, scented pillows, wreaths, arrangements or craft activities, Ruth provides inspirational projects and expertise, despite having no formal floristry training. Her dried flower blog is a perfect accompaniment to her interest in gardening; through the craft she seeks to prolong the beauty of summer and revive the vintage art of flower preservation.
