How Do I Dry Lavender Flowers?

Answer

Drying Lavender flowers is easy, I like to use rubber bands when bundling other wise the stems shrink and fall out of the harvested bundles.  You will need to replace the rubber bands with raffia, once dried, because the rubber degrades over time.  Make sure you place your harvest in a cool dry spot, away from sunlight and check on it's progress every few days.  Also don't make the flower bundle too fat or air will have trouble reaching the middle. You want to dry Lavender blossoms on the inside too.
