Buy preserved foliage bunches of beech also known as Fagus leaves. Wholesale packs. Each bunch consists of four or more branched stems, about 55cm long. This is a bunch of real leaves on stems, not artificial. This preserved foliage is made by treating the fresh stems and leaves with glycerin (a naturally occurring chemical), and a colourant, leaving them more supple than traditional drying methods. The natural looking olive green leaves are darker on one side and make a great backgound for brightly coloured dried flowers. Bulk pack sizes of ten or twenty bunches, RRP £19 to £25 per bunch.
May not be colourfast in damp conditions. These bunches are often packed flat in transit.
