Research in Flower Preservation 


ImageFlowers  Are Forever. This phrase is actually a title of a book  on dried and preserved flowers which was published by the Malaysian Agricultural Research and Development  Institute (MARDI) in 1996. This short note is not an  advertisement for the book but rather to highlight the  research work done by the person behind it: Zaharah  Hassan, a senior research officer in MARDI.

The research and development activities on flower preservation  in MARDI started since the late 80's. Among the research  emphasis was on utilization of various local plant materials. Some unwanted materials such as grass and sedges, or  even lallang, which is one of our noxious weed that  grow wild everywhere could be beneficial to us.

Together with her research team, Zaharah has utilised  various preservation techniques including drying and  pressing. She studied various aspects of dyeing, bleaching,  drying, storage, packaging and even product presentation.
