Keeping Hydrangeas Perky

Happy Thursday! Just a quick pop-in to share a little tip I learned from another blogger regarding keeping hydrangeas from drooping. I tried it yesterday and it worked, so I wanted to share with you. I just love having these on my desk space!

The tip comes from Sarah @ Thrifty Decor Chick. The process is super easy. Cut or purchase hydrangeas, soak them in a little bath of cold water, and wait for them to perk up. I cut some stems from my yard yesterday and they were very droopy because of the extreme heat we've been having. I threw them in a cold bath and waited. I checked them after 30 minutes and they looked the same. I decided to just leave the house and leave them soaking. 

I came home after a few hours and they were as good as new and very perked up! Love this tip!

I posted on Instagram that I purchased several "distressed" hydrangea plants last season and planted them in my side yard. Much to my surprise, they have come back and are producing blooms! I can't wait until these plants get bigger and bigger every year and the side yard is full of these blooms. Don't forget to check the distressed or clearance racks wherever you purchase plants, especially this time of year. Hope you're having a wonderful week! xo
