What is the difference between freeze-dried and preserved petals?
Freeze-dried rose petals are bio-degradable, light-weight, have a natural colour and are fragile. More importantly, they do not stain. These petals are colourfast for about 3 to 5 weeks provided they are kept in a dry, dark place. After this period, the rose petals may start to lose their colour. 

Preserved rose petals are also bio-degradable but feel softer and do not break into pieces. These petals have been coloured and therefore can stain. Provided they are kept in a dry, dark place, preserved rose petals can be kept for between 1 to 3 years. After this period, the rose petals may begin to lose their colour. 

We only supply real rose petals. All our products can be stored simply at room temperature. Storage in a fridge or freeze is not necessary.
