Keeping your Hydrangeas Beautiful!

I love Hydrangeas! They last so long, they are fresh and remind me that summer isn't that far away. 

As much as I love them I haven't always had the best of luck with them. There are times that they wilt the day after I buy them!

Then I learned what do with them. I'm no green thumb but here is what I have learned and so far the proof is in my beautiful arrangement. 

1) Strip all the leaves off, they suck water away from the flowers



2) Cut the stems at a 45 degree angle under running water, this helps the stem absorb water easily



3) Split the stems up about 1/2 and inch. This stops the stem from getting blocked by sap


4) Last step, put the stems in boiling water for 30 seconds -this helps seal your newly cut stems


Ta-Da!
Pretty right?


Happy Friday!
