Tips for caring for your cut Hydrangeas!
Lets go! >>>
Proper Cutting Technique:
Use a smooth knife to cut your hydrangeas from the bush. This is important because when you cut straight across the stems (and especially with scissors) this pinches the stems closed and doesn’t allow water in.
Water Is Key!
When heading out to cut your stems it is critical that you immediately place the cut stems in water. These fragile flowers wilt very quickly.
Prepping the Stems:
I also use my knife to cut a 2-3 inch diagonal slit in each stem and this will allow the water to travel up the stems easier!
An Extra Step:
I boiled some water and then dipped each stem in a mug of boiling water for 30 seconds. This melts the sap that builds up inside of the stem.
Then after each stem has sat in the boiled water you can dip the stem in Alum.
