The Top Five Flowers to Preserve in 2024

Flowers are a cost-effective and easy way to brighten up your space. They also make a great gift for any occasion, but as with all natural things, flowers can only last so long. However, what if we told you there was a way to enjoy your favourite blooms for longer?

Preserving flowers is a great way to ensure your favourites can be kept for up to a year. Here, we’ll list our top five recommended flowers to preserve and why.

What Are The Top Five Flowers to Preserve in 2024?


Roses are a timeless classic and no matter the occasion, they make a great gift. Whether it’s a romantic partner or celebrating friendship, roses cater for everyone. They often give the impression of luxury and elegance.

Preserved roses are a great way of adding luxury to your home décor.


Who doesn’t love lavender? Often a sign of spring, its popular purple hue is a great way to add a pop of colour to your surroundings. Similarly, they make a great addition to any wildflower bouquet or perhaps a spring bouquet?

If spring is your favourite season, by preserving the lavender flower, you’re able to enjoy it all year around!


Strawflowers are daisy-like flowers that appear dry – even when fresh on the stem. Due to their ability to hold their shape and colour (even when cut from the roots), they have been associated with immortality. They are commonly referred to as everlasting. It’s for this reason that we recommend preserving them, as an easy way to brighten your bouquet.

Why not make the everlasting flower last even longer?

Baby’s Breath

Symbolising sincerity, purity, and love, baby’s breath flowers complement any flower. These beautiful wildflowers don’t detract from the main flower in a bouquet. It’s this subtlety that makes them a firm favourite at Magic Flower and would be a great addition to your preserved flower bouquet.

Pansy Flower

These eye-catching flowers are a great way to add colour to any space. Pansy flowers come in a variety of colours and almost have a tie-dye effect so why not enjoy their beauty for longer?

How to preserve Flowers?

There are many ways to preserve flowers. Some choose to dry/press flowers, others choose a preservation mixture.

At Magic Flower, we use a biodegradable preservation mixture which allows us to preserve your bespoke flower arrangements so you can enjoy their beauty for longer. It also ensures that your preserved flowers are cost-effective as they will have a longer lifespan.
