How To Dry Hydrangeas.September 17, 2015
One of the things that I get asked a lot on Instagram is how to dry hydrangeas. I love the colours as they start to dry at this time of year, deep dusky pinks as their petals lose their moisture and turn all papery. If you dry them successfully, they can last for years and make an everlasting floral display.
My Mother in law dried some of the hydrangeas from our wedding display whilst we were on honeymoon, which has made for both a lovely keepsake that's now part of the kitchen. They're in the galvanised jug in the photo above. Since then, I've tried to dry some more hydrangeas from the garden with varying success. I've read up a lot about it and this is what I've learned.
