About this time last year, I did a post on hydrangea “Antique Season.” It’s still applicable this year (as it will continue to be). BUT, rather than repeat the post which you can read HERE, I thought I would go one stop further and cover how to dry/preserve those fabulous flowers as they morph into their late season colors.


Just this morning, I accessed the White Flower Farm blog and read A RECENT POST on that topic. In a word, it is superb. If you have any interest in preserving your flowers beyond time in the vase, read that post. Click on the link above to get to an informative, excellent guide.
