  1. I am surprised you didn’t mention how hydrangeas do well with boiling water (or super hot). My stem from the shavuos arrangement stayed for two weeks on my table!!!

  2. Yes! Was going to mention that as well. You dunk the freshly cut stem into boiling water for a few seconds. Keeps it fresh way longer.

  3. a florist once told me to make sure to rest the heads on the rim of the vase since theyre too heavy to support themselves. I find that also extends their life.

  4. I put the boiling water in the vase and top off w some reg temp water. This also works if you think they have died. Do this and they will “come back to life”! Have done it many times!

  5. This post is amazing! Not only did the tips from the post (and the comments!) keep my hydrangeas alive for more than one day (that was my past record!) it has been almost a week and they look amazing and beautiful! Thank you thank you!!
