More about your Hydrangea plant

The Hydrangea is a tradition plant with a distinctive rounded look that brings a quiet country feel into your space. Perfect for both indoor and outdoor settings. These hardy shrubs flower in spring and summer, and are a great choice for beginners.

Where do I put my Hydrangeas?

Hydrangeas love bright, shaded spaces. If planting outdoors you should plant in bright place that is shaded at midday. Avoid planting under trees as this will cause them to compete for resources. If growing indoors, keep in a shaded corner that gets light in the morning. Avoid direct sunlight as this may burn the leaves and petals.

How to water Hydrangeas

These plants like moist, but not wet soil. When growing indoors you should wait until the soil has gone slightly dry at the top before watering again. If the leaves start to turn yellow you should water immediately as this is a sign that they are being underwatered.

If growing outdoors you should water your hydrangea at least once a week with about one inch of water. Remember to water deeply to encourage new root growth and use a soaker hose if you want to keep the soil moist, but the leaves and foliage dry. You will also get good results if you mulch the soil underneath your plants.

Should I prune my Hydrangea?

You don't need to prune your plant unless you want to control their size. Cutting back a third of the oldest stems will encourage fuller growth. You may also want to prune back slightly once the blossoms fade.

What do I do with an indoor Hydrangea in the winter?

Hydrangeas are perennial plants so will bloom again in the spring after losing petals in the winter. Of you want to keep your flower into the next year, you should repot your plant once the flowering is over and cut the stems back by half. You should them move the plant into a warmer location in late winter in order to encourage new blooms in time for spring.
