    Hoping to get some insight from some of you out there that have had success preserving sagebrush with some kind of preservative...whether its the Plant Life Preserver or a mix of glycerin and water (as mentioned on a previous post on these forums). I've tried the plant life preserver, but the problem I am running into is that the entire woody part of sagebrush is taking on the color of the plant preserver. From my understanding, after speaking with Knoblochs, this is not what the preservative is supposed to do.

    If anyone has used the glycerin and water, plus food coloring...is the woody part of the plant taking on the green color? What time of year are you having the best success in getting it to preserve?

    I know some guys that have used the 50/50 Elmers-Water Spray, but say it gets brittle and doesn't hold up too well.
