Bulk Hydrangea flowers are shipped directly from our farms. Before shipping your flowers, we prepare them for their journey with proper hydration methods. If your flowers appear sleepy and thirsty after their journey, it is absolutely NORMAL. Follow the instructions listed below and your flowers will bloom beautifully.
- Remove flowers from box by cutting any straps.
- Fill containers one with at least 4 inches of fresh, cool water.
- Using sharp scissors or a knife under running water, cut the stems diagonally approximately an inch from each stem's bottom edge. Place flowers directly into vessels to begin hydration.
- Remove any dark or fading petals. It is normal to find several dark or fading petals, all of which can be easily removed without damaging the hydrangea.
- Keep flowers away from direct sunlight, drafts and excessive heat. Cooler temperatures will prolong the hydrangeas vase life. You may choose to use a floral refrigerator, but it is not required.
- Allow your flowers at least 4 hours to properly hydrate before arranging.
- Change water and re-cut stems every 24 hours to keep flowers fresh. Hydrangeas love water; check the vessels regularly to ensure the containers never run out.
If your hydrangeas begin to wilt, to refresh the flower, dunk the entire flower head in cool water for approximately 20 minutes. For special instructions about reviving hydrangeas by dunking in fresh water, click on this link How to Revive Wilted Hydrangeas - Industry Insider Share their Secrets.
