Cut 4 BloomStruck blooms approximately 8 inches down the stem. Strip the leaves from the stem, other than the leaves immediately under the bloom, and place in a vase of room temperature water. To extend the life of your cut hydrangeas, here is a tip we learned from our friends at place stems in room temperature water immediately after cutting, then boil water and place the hydrangea stems in the hot water for 30 seconds before returning to the room temperature water. This can help unclog the stems and allow water to freely flow to the blooms.
