Tip of the day
Hydrangea cultivation is one of the most sustainable of cut flower crops, with minimal levels of energy and nutrient consumption.
Cut flower Hydrangeas do not do well in a metal vase or bucket. Glass vases are ideal. You can easily check the quantity and quality of the water.
Unique to Hydrangeas is the evolving colours of the flowers. During bloom the flowers change colours. Their original colour mixes with green tints in various tones.
Cut flower Hydrangeas are cut in different stages of growth. The more advanced the flower colour changing, the more durable. A fully grown, colour changed flower that feels hard and firm, can stand in a vase beautifully for up to 3 weeks.
Fill the vase with 2/3 water and add cut flower food before you arrange your cut flower Hydrangeas in the vase.
Do not place hydrangeas in direct sunlight or near a heater.
Fruit produce gas which make Hydrangea flowers age soon. Therefore do not put the flower vase too close to the fruit basket.
