Keeping Hydrangeas FreshI have a friend who owns a hydrangea business. She is always so generous to share them with us, but it is frustrating because they look beautiful for about a day and then they would begin to wilt.

I tried trimming them, adding plant preservative to them it was to no avail.

Finally, by accident after leaving them out on my porch one night I realized that my house was just too warm for them.  So, rather than bringing them in the house I sat them right on my deck outside my kitchen window so I could gaze on them each time I looked out my window and I sat some in front of my entrance door to greet guest.

If you are having the same trouble with your plants and it is cool enough outside you could just set your vase out each night to keep them cool and bring them in the house for part of the day to extend their life.
