I used to never buy beautiful hydrangeas because they always wilted…
But I picked some up at the Kroger this morning because someone told me the secret to keeping hydrangea blooming for at least a week.
It’s the cooking spice Alum.
Hydrangea stems have a bad habit of closing when you snip them, and then they can’t get any water.
The Alum keeps them open…
And the hydrangea beautiful for days to come!
