Processing a bunch of bearded wheat before use
Bearded wheat is beautiful in a mixed dried flower bouquet
Also know as Triticale, this natural dried grass adds an informal or country element to bouquets and arrangements. But each tufted dried head of corn comes with its own leaf which can look a bit untidy initially.
Once you start cutting down the dried flower stems to use them in a bouquet, you can see that the leaf is on an outer layer that is easily removed. The head of wheat is left without its unattractive neighbour!
Bearded wheat looks great in a dried flower bouquet with lavender
The dried flower bouquet below was made using bearded wheat treated in this way, mixed with dried lavender flower stems of different lengths for an informal bunch, tied with natural raffia.
See my post last month for more about dried flower bouquets.
