Buy preserved foliage bunches of ruscus also known as butchers broom leaves. Each bunch consists of approx ten stems, about 55cm long. Wholesale packs. 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, and a colourant, leaving them more supple than traditional drying methods. The ivory colour of the leaves makes an unusual foil for pale arrangements and dried flower bouquets. Bulk packs of ten or twenty bunches, RRP £15 to £20 per bunch.
May not be colourfast in damp conditions. These bunches are often packed flat in transit.
A note about bleached items: Bleaching is a chemical process and may leave a residual chemical smell which some people find unappealing. Most people are not aware of a smell and we find that any remaining scent often disperses after a few days out of the packaging. If you think you might be sensitive to the fragrance of bleached items, we recommend you stick to our wide range of natural dried flowers and natural grasses.
