I got a hydrangea for Mother’s day. I planted it and now it is wilting and the blooms are turning brown. What can I do to save it?
IS IT NECESSARY TO COVER MY NEW HYDRANGEA TREE WHEN THE WEATHER GETS BELOW FREEZING? WHY DO THE BUDS FALL OFF SO EASILY?
I JUST RECEIVED AN ENDLESS SUMMER HYDRANGEA FOR MOTHER’S DAY. SHOULD WE PLANT IT RIGHT AWAY OR CAN WE PUT IT IN A POT? IF WE PUT IT IN A POT WHEN CAN WE PUT IT IN THE GROUND? ALSO, IN IOWA, HOW MUCH SHADE IS PARTIAL SHADE?
I have an 18″ x 18″ pot and would like to plant either a 1 or 2 gallon hydrangea bloom. I live in NYC and have a large terrace. Am I better off to get the 1 gallon size and keep it trimmed to fit in the pot as it grows – and replant it to a larger pot – or divide to fit in two pots later on?
Will my hydrangea bloom with a couple hours of afternoon filtered sun? I am in zone 6.
Why my hydrangea seems it’s dying (leaves are turning yellow) after I planted it in my backyard. It was absolutely great while in the pot. I water it every other day but see no sign of improvement.
My Endless Summer Hydrangea bushes are producing smaller, but many, blooms. These bushes have always produced much larger blooms which I prefer. Is there something I can do to get the larger blooms again next year? I should state we were making the mistake of cutting these bushes down to the ground each fall, so were getting very few blooms. Last year we did not cut them back at all and I have plenty of blooms but small in size. Hoping there is a way to get lots of the big ones again!
Q
We transplanted an older hydrangea from my uncle’s property, so it hasn’t been cared for in several years. It is pretty wild and all over the place! How can I care for this best? Should I trim? fertilize?
I purchased a JetStream Hydrangea. I want to set up a water irrigation system. How often should it be watered, how many times a week and for how long? It is planted in central South Carolina.
How come my hydrangea doesn’t flower?
