How to dry hydrangea flowers

Step 1: Depending on the season when you feel your flowers are at their most beautiful, cut a couple of globes off your garden hydrangea on a dry morning. Decide in advance what you want to do with the dried flowers and so how long you want the stem to be.
Step 2: Remove the foliage from the stems.
Step 3: Pour a couple of centimetres of water into a vase, and add glycerine.
Step 4: Place the flowers in the vase and allow the water to evaporate slowly. The glycerine ensures that the flowers retain their colour. Your flowers will be dried after some 2 to 3 weeks.
