Blue Hydrangea Cut Flower Care instructions:
As soon as you receive your flowers, open their box(es) and cut strapping to remove flowers.
Hydrangeas will arrive with a plastic wrap around the bloom and a water/food packet attached to the bottom of their stems. Remove this packet just prior to cutting and hydrating.
Hydrangeas have a large flower head and thus a lot of surface area from which moisture evaporates. Thus, hydrangeas require a lot of water. Proper hydration is the key to having them look their best.
When hydrating, you will be hydrating both the flower bloom and the leaves on the stem. To keep most of the water available to hydrate your flower head, remove any leaves you will not need for your arrangements. To remove leaves, carefully pinch off the leaf where it attaches to the stem. Be careful with the leaves closest to the flower head.
Cut approximately 1" off the bottom of the stem at a steep angle, allowing the stems more surface area to drink up water. Be sure to cut between the nobs on the stems - these nobs help the stem uptake water - cutting through them may interfere with the flowers ability to hydrate properly.
Immediately place in fresh, prepared water. We recommend the use Floral food.
Hydrangeas also like to take up water through their large mop heads. You can either spray the flower directly with fresh water from a spray bottle or, you can submerge the entire flower and stem in a bathtub or large sink for 20 - 30 minutes before placing in your prepared hydrating buckets.
Hydrangeas are very thirsty - check water levels often to ensure they have plenty of water.
Let Hydrangeas hydrate for at least 4 hours before arranging, 12 or more hours is highly recommended. Ensure hydrangeas have plenty of water (check regularly - flowers drink a lot upon arrival) and keep the water clean.
You can easily refresh hydrangea blooms if they appear to droop by giving them a fresh stem cut and submerging the entire flower head and stem in water for 20 - 30 minutes.
Ensure flowers are stored out of direct sunlight and in a cool, dry area. Avoid drafts or heat sources.
Stem Length approx 12 - 16 inches
Do NOT overcrowd your hydrangeas in your container(s). If hydrangeas are overcrowded while hydrating, it could effect their blooming process.
