Happy Beautiful & Wilt Free Hydrangeas
by Reba Berge, Tastemaker in Residence
Keep your hydrangeas from wilting with alum powder. Alum keeps the end of the stem crisp and allows it to continue to pull up water, keeping your hydrangeas beautiful and wilt free. Alum is found in packets in the spice aisle of your local grocery store.
After the hydrangea stem is cut, simply dip the stem directly in the alum powder and place the stem into your vase or container of choice.
Enjoy the season of Hydrangeas!
