Over a month ago I wrapped up my peony buds via the method I watched Martha Stewart do on her show so that I could take them out at a later date to enjoy them. I thought it was odd that they were packed dry but I figured Martha knew best. I even shared this tip with all of you. I decided to take out some of the flowers to put in a vase and when I opened up the package they had all dried out. So even the almighty Martha sometimes gets it wrong. Lesson learned always store unopened flower buds in the fridge with water.
