Drying hydrangeas are so easy. There are a few ways to do this.

  1. When you cut them and bring them in the house, put them in a vase of water, just a few inches, not too much water. After the water dissipates, the flowers will dry naturally.
  2. You can hang them upside down in a dry, excellent spot, and they will dry naturally.
  3. You can use a product called Silica gel. You want to pour the sand over the entire bloom and let this sit for 2-3 days. This gel removes the moisture in the flowers.
  4. Using the silica gel, you can cover the entire bloom and place it in the microwave for 3o seconds at a time up to 2.5 minutes. After this, you want to let the flower sit in the Silica gel for 24 hours. Using silica gel is a much faster way, but I find you tend to lose more color doing it this way.
