Everyone who visited the State Botanical Garden during the holidays enjoyed beautiful decorations made of dried plant materials. Not all flowers are dried the same, and the methods used in the process were trial and error. Join Darlene Morris as she shows us how to gather materials, get them ready for drying and share methods they used.
Darlene is originally from North Carolina. A graduate of Randolph Community College with a degree in Horticulture and Floral Design, she worked for the North Carolina Zoo for 29 years. After retiring in 2013, she and her husband moved back to Georgia and soon began volunteering at the State Botanical Garden of Georgia. In 2016 she became a part-time employee working with Cliff Brock and now works in the Flower Garden with Jim Moneyhun.
