One question we hear over and over… “How do I stop my cut hydrangeas from wilting?” Simple answer – Use flower food.
We decided to do a little experiment to see how a hydrangea holds up after 24 hours in floral preservative versus regular city tap water.
They were from the same shipment and box, re-cut and placed in either flower preservative or plain water.
The result is UNBELIEVABLE!
Prepare to be AMAZED……. The hydrangea in the below picture is the SAME one that was in plain water!
Hydrangeas drink LOTS of water so make sure they have plenty available. You can visit our Care & Handling page for more tips on hydrangea.
Protect your fresh cut flower investment and be sure to use the appropriate preservative and concentration. We carry a vast array of different products to best suit your needs.
A SPECIAL NOTE on flower care & handling
If possible, do not use water from a water softener for your flowers. The salt content may shorten the life of some flowers.
If you have any questions about the quality of your water, contact your local supply department who can help you determine the best flower food to use.
