How To Make Hydrangeas Last Longer!

Hydrangeas are my favorite flowers, and so are tulips. And sunflowers. And roses..and well just about every flower. But seriously I do love Hydrangeas. So that's why when I discovered this little "tip" I was so excited to share! Funny (and sorta lame) how things like this get me excited, right? UGHHH. Anyway. I've shared this on Instagram and SnapChat a few times, but just realized I've never blogged it? I'm such a weirdo, I've meant to sit down and share a few times but it's literally so easy I never thought to make a post about it. I'm sharing anyway just so I can reference ya'll when you ask! 

It's so funny when you discover the simplest things and they make your life so much easier. I mean, keeping Hydrangeas alive longer might not be important to you, but it's pretty important to me. No judgement here, alright? 

Anyway, I picked up my most recent batch of my favorite flowers at the grocery store for $8. Seriously, this is $8 spent that seriously makes me so happy. The thing about them though, is that they can be so darn temperamental. The smallest things and they wilt and die. This little "trick" will actually keep them alive for up to 2 weeks! Sometimes longer! 

I'm just asking you to try it, okay? 

It's literally as easy as 1-2-3. Or 4.. Whatever. You get that it's easy.
1. Boil some water, about a cup should do. You want enough so about an inch of the stems are covered in the water. 

2. While the water is boiling, cut the stems at a diagonal length. Whatever length you need to fit the vase of your choice. You'll also want to fill up your vase with lukewarm water. THIS IS CRUCIAL.  Using water that's too hot or too cold will cause them to wilt. 

3. Once the water is boiling, place the stems of the Hydrangeas (about an inch, or a little less..) in the water for NO MORE THEN 10 SECONDS. You don't want to burn the stems. Also, Make sure the lower leaves are cut prior to placing the stems in water, if you burn the leaves, the bloom will wilt. 

4. IMMEDIATELY put the flowers in your vase. And IT'S MAGIC.. I promise ya'll they will stay alive for what feels like FOREVER!

You can also repeat these steps if it's been awhile and your flowers are wilting, this will help them perk back up! It's really important not to keep Hydrangeas out of water too long, if you purchase them from the store, make sure you head right home after, and if you cut them from home, make sure you put them in water immediately. You get that they just really love water, right? LOL. 

Try out this trick, and let me know how it works for you! I'd love to hear how it works out!

    I am Michelle Huxford from Casper, Wyoming. I was in a very chronic financial issue and terminal health situation some few weeks back. After all my search for assistance from friends and neighbors proved abortive, I feel there was no one who truly cares. I became so emaciated due to lack of good food and my 2 kids age 5 and 8 were not also good looking due to lack of proper care as a result of finance. One faithful morning I saw an old time friend of my late husband and I told him all I have been going through and he said the only way he could help was to direct me to a good loan agency that also helped him, He explained to me on how he was financially down and how he got boosted by this loan agency UPSTART LOAN INC ( ) who grant him 245,000 USD loan at an affordable rate. He further assured me that they were the only legit loan firm he found in the quest of seeking for loan after been scammed by various fake loan lenders online. He gave me their email: or text/call (574) 301-1639, That was how i applied and was also granted a loan and my life changed for the good. CONTACT THE ONLY GENUINE LENDERS( UPSTART LOAN INC) VIA email: or call +1 (574) 301-1639 to resolve your financial mess.
