Hydrangeas in Flower Foam – SUCCESS!

This week’s video blog is about Hydrangeas in foam…I know a lot of you get nervous when it comes to placing Hydrangeas in flower foam but don’t worry! Just follow these steps:

  1. Use Good Quality Foam. In this vlog, I use the NEW Midnight Foam from Oasis® . It’s bio-degradable and transfers water to the flowers easily.
  2. Leave Plenty of room in the container for a water supply. Water is super important to hydrangeas so you have to have good water reservoir. 
  3. BUY quality Hydrangeas from a reliable resource. Cheap hydrangeas are usually a disappointment and you need to ensure you are getting good quality flowers. The Hydrangeas in this vlog are from and they are high quality antique blue that perform well.
  4. Cut your stems with a sharp locking blade knife to insure a sharp clean 45˚ angle cut before inserting deeply into the flower foam. 

It’s truly that simple! Follow these steps and save this vlog for future reference…You’ll have success every time!

    It was interesting that you did not treat your hydrangea stems with alum. We were told that the Alum helped to preserve the bloom. I also liked the fact that you had a “reservoir” of water around your foam for added moisture.

      Thank you Carol/Kelly- I don’t use the Alum unless it’s necessary- using fresh Hydrangea- is important- but the Alum is a fail safe- IF I am concerned about the freshness or age of the Hydrangea- I love the Hydrangea from GroFlowers- I have never had an incident- EVER – with their hydrangea- they are treated with professional care- from the Plant to the Market- and to your door… it’s important- that we ALWAYS Choose the VERY Freshest Hydrangea- to ensure our Success! Thank you for the comment-
