I PLANTED MY HYDRANGEA AND HAD SOME FROST. THE BUDS WERE STARTING AND ARE NOW DROOPING DOWN AND SOME LEAVES ARE WILTED. SHOULD THEY BE CUT BACK?

It’s fine to prune off the tips to encourage the hydrangea to grow new leaves and buds. The Endless Summer Hydrangea planting and care guide has additional tips to help you grow healthy shrubs that are full of flowers.
