5 Tips for Growing Gorgeous Hydrangeas: These classic flowering shrubs are prized by homeowners from North to South. Here's how to get them to bloom their best
Growing Gorgeous, Growing Hydrangeas, This Old Houses, Gardens, Plants Hydrangeas, Tips, Photo, Gorgeous Hydrangeas, Flowers Shrubs
see 5 Tips for Growing Gorgeous Hydrangeas on the fifth slide.I just have a tip or two: 1.) Hydrangeas are very forgiving. You can even split a planted hydrangea with a square nosed shovel. Fill the hole left behind with good quality compost or garden soil that you prefer. 2.) place a rock or a brick on a low lying branch, heavy enough to press the branch down and into constant contact with the soil. Make sure the soil stays moist.
