My hydrangea are wilting after too much sun followed by too much water in hope to correct the sun. How can I save them? Should I replant in larger pot? I have already moved it to a shady area to avoid direct sunlight.


It can be unnerving watching a plant get settled into its new home in the garden. And, thank you for sending in a picture. It doesn’t appear the container has drainage holes. I would start over with a new container with good drainage. Plus, invest in good potting soil. And, even mulch container plants to help keep the roots cool and conserve moisture. Before you start this project, take a look at our guide for container gardening with hydrangeas for additional tips. Following the guidelines should help give your hydrangea the restart button that it needs.
