Hydrangeas are beautiful when they bloom in spring and summer. However, sometimes they don’t bloom the way you want them to. Hydrangea flowers can be finicky, but taking care of your plant’s needs increases your chances of getting to experience an amazing bloom. Most problems are issues of watering, sunlight, and soil quality. Proper pruning also helps, and remember to protect plants from harsh weather and pests. Care for your hydrangeas and you will likely end up with stunning blossoms to admire.
Hydrangeas are woody shrubs with beautiful white, blue, pink, or purple blooms. Although these plants are hardy, special care should be taken to prepare hydrangeas for winter. No matter what climate you live in, you should offset the cold weather and loss of moisture by watering the soil and adding compost to it. In climates where winter temperatures do not dip below freezing, a layer of mulch will suffice to protect your flowers. If you live in a climate with winter temperatures below , you will have to build hydrangea shelters before the first frost of the season to protect your plants.
Hydrangeas are beautiful flowering plants that come in a variety of colors and sizes. If you want to keep your outdoor hydrangea plants looking nice, be sure to water them and prune them regularly. For cut hydrangea stems, try dipping the tips in alum spice powder, changing the vase water regularly, and dunking the hydrangea blooms in lukewarm water.
