When buying Hydrangeas, to check how fresh they are, place your hand gently on the flower heads. If they feel firm, you know that they’re fresh.
To get the best out of them, the most important thing to do is to ensure that they’re hydrated.
First of all, remove most of the foliage and cut the stem at a slant.
If they do wilt, try submerging the flower heads and stems in a sink or bath overnight, or at least for two to three hours. Then, when you remove them, make sure that you shake off any excess water.
Another way of trying to revive them is to cut the stems and then place them in boiling water for a few minutes, before putting them in cool water.
