Author(s): Khyati M Patel, RB Patel, SL Chawla, Swati Parmar and Unnati R Patel

Abstract:
The present experiment was conducted to study the standardization of drying methods for various winter annual flowers viz., dianthus, annual chrysanthemum and China aster. Drying in room condition recorded significantly maximum loss in fresh weight percentage, moisture percentage and took minimum day to drying with silica gel as embedding method while, minimum reduction in dried flower diameter was recorded with sea sand embedding media in dianthus, annual chrysanthemum and China aster. Drying with silica gel embedding also obtained maximum point scale on visual basis of colour, texture and appearance in dried flowers of dianthus, annual chrysanthemum and China aster.
