How can I preserve hydrangea blossoms?


I have some gorgeous hydrangea blossoms this year. The color is amazing. I am moving and the bush must stay behind. Is there any way t preserve them?

Thank you

    I usually just dry them. Maybe someone has another (better) method.

    To dry them, my best friend cut them (never cut in the morning when they are wet with dew. Cut in afternoon!) and threw them in her car's trunk. Drove around all summer and when she opened the trunk 2 1/2 months later, voila'! They were perfect!

    You can cut starts from your bush and put in water until roots grow then plant at your new place. I saw someone use hair spray?

    I have cuts but they seem to be dying, not rooting
