Hang bunches of herbs to dry for use later in a variety of projects, such as wreaths or culinary blends. To preserve their fragrance and color, hang bunches upside down in a warm, dry, and airy place away from light and heat. Use bunches of marjoram, tansy, artemisia, sage, and lavender, along with roses and statice, as rustic decor.
