Dry Hydrangeas Yourself

Classic hydrangeas are popular flowers in a dry bouquet or arrangement. Inform your customers about how to dry hydrangeas. Also hang a few hydrangeas in your shop as an example or use them in a beautiful bouquet.




Tips for Drying Hydrangeas

– Remove the flowers from the vase when they no longer absorb water and start to droop
– Hang them upside down in a warm and dry place until they are completely dry
– An alternative is to let them dry in the vase. To do this, first, remove the water from the vase and remove the leaves from the stems

What Are Classic Hydrangeas?

The uniqueness of hydrangeas is the coloring of the flowers. During flowering, the flowers change color. Their original color blends with a green tone in various color accents. This is called the “classic” cut hydrangea. The shelf life of the classic is two to three weeks thanks to their sturdy stems and flower buds and they are extremely suitable for drying.
