As Janie explains, pressing not only provides a means by which you can preserve blossoms; it can also serve as a way to record your garden’s evolution from year to year.

Some of the flowers she recommends pressing from Martha’s garden include Virginia blue bell tulips, pink miniature roses, perennial geraniums, and forget-me-nots, while Janie uses a dwarf Jacob’s ladder from her own garden to demonstrate the process.
