Baby's Breath

Delicate baby’s breath (Gypsophila paniculata) makes a good filler for bouquets and fresh or dried arrangements. Wait until the morning dew dries before cutting long stems just as the buds start to open. The stems will shrink over time, so use a rubber band to bundle them together, and hang them upside down for a couple of weeks. Give them good air circulation while they’re drying in a dark place.
