Pim van den Akker loves to work with Hydrangeas and got some beautiful varieties to work with, like the 'Verena', 'Pimpernel' and 'Rapsody'. He creates a big bouquet with them and adds a little twist with some dried sunflower stalks.
When using cut Hydrangea, be sure to:
- use a clean vase
- add flower food to the water
- cut the stems with a sharp knife in a 45 degrees angle so they can hydrate as much as possible
- remove some/all of the leaves as they use up a lot of water
- mist the flowers for extra hydration
- keep the flowers away from direct sunlight, draft and heating
