This year seems as we have been blessed with the most beautiful year of hydrangeas. The deep purple, the light purple, the pinks each color is radiant this summer.
I love to cut a bunch and display in a vase. I try to keep one on my desk enjoying them all day.
One thing that bothered me was their short life span once cut! I have become a Tick-Tok fan learning the most interesting stuff (from cleaning your house to preparing a garden).
Last week, I saw a hack about hydrangeas. Be ready!!! After cutting the blooms, strip the leaves, cut the stalk at an angle…then…put them stem down in a pot of boiling water and leave for several hours are over night! I thought surely this will kill the beautiful blooms! The boiling water did not! Now my flowers last several days. Also, get this, you can take a wilted hydrangea follow the same process—and the flower will “come back to life.”
Hydrangeas take in water through their leaves…not stem!
