ONLY 1 OF 4 PLANTS BLOOMED LAST SUMMER. THIS SPRING I HAVE GREEN BUDS AT GROUND LEVEL BUT NOT ON LAST YEAR’S WOODY STEMS. THE BUDS ON THE OLD STEMS ARE BROWN AND APPEAR TO BE DEAD. SHOULD I CUT THE OLD STEMS TO THE GROUND? HALFWAY? WHAT AM I DOING WRONG?
Should Limoncello Barberry be pruned to the ground or just the top third next spring?
I received hydrangea this past spring for my birthday in May. Do I need to cover it for the winter?
Website says to fertilize in early spring or summer so does that mean you only fertilize one time? But it also says follow instructions on label, which mine says feed every 14 days. I bought the Scots company garden pro water soluble miracid acid loving plant food. So do I only do this once or do I feed every 14 days?
I BOUGHT THIS ENDLESS SUMMER LAST WEEK. THE LEAVES TURNED BROWN AND SOFT. I’M NOT SURE WHAT HAPPENED. IS IT BECAUSE OF THE WEATHER? LAST FEW DAYS IT SNOWED IN OUR AREA. THE TEMPERATURE DROPPED TO -2 DEGREES AND SPRING SEASON IS ALMOST OVER.
I HAVE A BLOOMSTRUCK REBLOOMING HYDRANGEA AND IT SEEMS AS THOUGH THE BUDS HAVE DIED ON LAST YEAR’S GROWTH, BUT I DO HAVE NEW GROWTH COMING IN. SHOULD I BE WORRIED?
We purchased The Original this spring, but it appears to be blooming white with hints of a very light blue. Was the plant mislabeled and actually a blushing bride or does this happen with The Original?
I have my hydrangea planted above ground in a large pot. I an trying to find out what I need to do with the plant during winter so it will come back in the spring. I have read the winter instructions but that is if the plant is planted in the ground and the roots are underground. With the plant in a pot the roots are above ground and is at more risk of root freezing. What can I do with this plant so it will come up again each year?
Hi purchased beginning of may and the shrub has a couple of full grown roses. We had a late spring frost and ever since the roses that do bloom currently are small and petals just fal right off. Is this normal?
I didn’t prune my Endless Summer last fall or this Spring. I am getting new growth on almost all of my stems. Can I NOW cut some of the stems back to a new growth? It seems when I think about doing that and look at them I see more growth popping up further up the stems almost to the top.
