My hydrangea blooms are turning a beautiful color as they age on the bush.  When they were fresh and a bright pink, I cut some and tried the glycerin method of drying – didn’t work for me. 

Now, I would love to dry them in this stage, but hate to keep experimenting.  Anyone out there with firsthand knowledge of a surefire way to dry these beauties?   Help……….  If it works, I’ll send some to you!

Your hydrangeas are gorgeous! I have over 80 of these beauties, and I find you have to wait until they have faded and are kind of papery feeling before you can dry them....otherwise they just shrivel. I usually don't dry mine until late July, but that's here in Tennessee (not sure where you are located). Hang them upside down in a cool, dry place and they should do fine.
Good luck,
