Hydrangeas at last!

Posted Jul 05 2010 12:00am
After moving to our home three years ago, I discovered two hydrangeas planted by the previous owners.  For the next two years they didn't bloom. I don't even remember doing anything to them the fist year.  The second year, after the leaves had fallen, I thought the stems were dead so I cut them to the ground.  Wrong!  I realized  that those dead sticks would come alive if I let them and in fact, those stems harbored the buds for the next year's flowers. I had an oakleaf hydrangea in my Brooklyn back yard and I knew not to prune it except to control the size.  I this Niko blue macrophylla was totally different.  Live and learn.  A good source on all things hydrangea is hydrangeashydrangeas.com
