How to Grow Hydrangeas

How to Grow Hydrangeas - including quick tricks to change them from blue to pink or back!!! "The color of your mophead depends upon your soil’s pH. Blue hydrangeas require aluminum; your soil must have a low pH (5.2 to 5.5). You can achieve this by adding aluminum sulfate to the soil.For pink blooms, your soil must have a higher pH (6.0 to 6.2); that is, a low level of aluminum. Phosphorus can help control the aluminum content and help you achieve the desired results."
