Denuding tips

May find a lot of disappointed readers with this title. We are talking about denuding lavender stalks and gathering the buds for sachets

Dried buds fall off fairly easily. Put a flat sheet under your work space. First shake bundles in a large ziploc or pillow case. Then roll and twist your enclosed bundle. Use a gentle touch. Most of the buds will fall off this way. For the hangers on, use your fingers or a detangling comb
