How do I preserve cockscomb?
Air-drying is the best way to preserve cockscomb. After harvesting cockscomb, strip the foliage from the stems. Tie the stems into small bunches with rubber bands. Hang the loose bunches upside down in a warm, dry, well-ventilated, dark location, such as an attic or shed. (Harvested flowers are usually hung to dry so the stems dry straight.) Dry the plant materials thoroughly. Two to four weeks is usually sufficient.
