Secrets for

Making Cut Hydrangeas Last

Hydrangeas are a beautiful addition to floral arrangements, but they can sometimes wilt faster than other flowers.

But I have a secret to how to make them last longer AND revive them if they wilt:

What if I told you the secret to preventing the flowers was as simple as this jar full of water?

Is the water special? Nope. Did I add something to the water? Nope! So how does it help keep the hydrangeas perky? One tiny little change, which is very important difference.

The water in the ball jar is HOT, almost boiling water.

Yes! Boiling Water! As soon as you cut the hydrangea, it forms a film sealing off the cut, which prevents water from traveling up the stem. Warm water opens the seal!
