A Background on Hydrangeas
Anyone who appreciates flowers knows that hydrangeas can be elusive. Somehow these flowers seem to last fine in a store, but the moment you get them home, they quickly start to wilt. So what are the flower arrangement tricks to keep your hydrangeas fresh longer?
- Hydrangeas drink water directly from their flowers. So get out a spritz bottle, and hydrate those flower petals.
- When you get your hydrangeas, give the flowers a fresh cut. One of the flower arrangement tricks for hydrangeas is to cut a deep diagonal at the stem and clean out the white bits. Alternatively, you can take a hammer and lightly smash the stems. This will help your hydrangeas hydrate faster.
- Hydrangeas drink a lot of water. You’ll need to give fresh cuts often as well as spritz the hydrangea leaves.
