Hy-maintenance: How to actually keep hydrangeas fresh

Hydrangeas are a stunning flower that can add beauty and elegance to any floral arrangement. However, they can also be a bit tricky to keep fresh in an arrangement. With their large blooms and delicate petals, hydrangeas require some special care to keep them looking their best. Here are some tips for keeping fresh cut hydrangeas fresh in an arrangement:

  1. Cut the stems properly: When cutting the stems of hydrangeas, be sure to cut them at an angle with sharp scissors or a knife. This will allow for better water absorption and prevent the stems from becoming blocked.

  2. Use warm water: Fill the vase with warm water, as hydrangeas absorb water more easily when it's warm. Make sure to also add flower food to the water to help the flowers last longer.

  3. Keep the water level consistent: Hydrangeas are thirsty flowers and require a lot of water to stay fresh. Make sure to check the water level in the vase daily and add more water as needed to keep the stems fully submerged.

  4. Remove leaves below the water line: Remove any leaves on the stems that will be below the water line, as they can decay and cause bacteria to grow in the water.

  5. Keep the arrangement cool: Hydrangeas do best in a cool environment, so make sure to keep them away from direct sunlight and heat sources. Keep the arrangement in a cool room or near a window that doesn't get direct sunlight.

  6. Mist the petals: Hydrangeas have delicate petals that can dry out quickly, especially in warm environments. To keep them fresh, mist the petals with a spray bottle filled with water every few days.

  7. Change the water frequently: Change the water in the vase every two days to prevent bacteria from growing and to keep the water fresh.

By following these tips, you can help keep your fresh cut hydrangeas looking beautiful and vibrant for as long as possible. With a little care and attention, your hydrangea arrangement will continue to add charm and elegance to your home for days to come.
