Hydrangea macrophylla cultivation notes: Shrubby Hydrangeas prefer a humus rich soil which is well drained, ideally in half or full sun. Plant in sheltered locations away from cold winds. Cut weak stems / flower heads in spring. Best planted neutral / acid soils, mulch yearly with compost.
needs a little sheltered spot in our walled garden in one of my big zinc pots l think
Last Saturday walking to the Knit and Natter via the library l saw some Hydrangea heads asking how much was told they would have been £12 each...gasp!!
But were all needed for an arrangement already ordered
Came home and said l must buy a plant or two at that price...hehe
