September is a fabulous month for Hydrangeas; they are in peak season and in high demand for weddings, gift bouquets and vase arrangements! These fluffy, cloud looking blooms come in pretty pastel shades of sky blue, soft pink and white or more colourful barbie pink, sea green and bold purples.

Hydrangeas are brilliant flowers to use for vase centre pieces at home, as they look great as the feature flower on their own or combined with other blooms for a softer look.

Tips for Hydrangeas

  • They are thirsty flowers, so keep the vase or container topped up with fresh water daily.
  • Work with odd number of stems for floral arrangements; 3,5 or 7
  • Trim the Hydrangea woody stems short before arranging
  • Arrange on their own or mix with lisianthus, roses or soft greenery.
  • Low, sturdy vases work well for hydrangea arrangements. Check out our acrylic cube vase which is ideal for multi-use floral designs or best selling flower hat boxes are also fantastic for stylish gifts.

What you need:

  • Hydrangeas (3, 5 or 7 stems recommended)
  • Sachet of FloraLife
  • Secateurs or sharp scissors
  • Vase
  • Any additional foliage or flowers

How to make a simple Hydrangea Vase Centrepiece

  • Fill your clean vase half way with tap water and add a sachet of FloraLife.
  • Measure your hydrangea stems against the vase, trimming at a 45 degree angle so that the flower head will sit just above the rim of the vase.
  • Carefully strip any leaves on the stem that will fall below the water line.
  • Arrange stem by stem in the vase – pop each hydrangea in at an angle, so that the stems will ‘criss-cross’. This helps add stability to the floral arrangement and looks pretty if using a clear vase.
  • Add any foliage or additional flowers if using.
  • Proudly display!
