How do I grow beautiful hydrangeas in zone 6?
I live in NJ in zone 6, and I planted four hydrangeas three years ago in our back yard to cover the septic pipe area. I also planted a high grass and black eyed susans. Everything else grows well, but the hydrangea usually do not flower. I may get one or two flowers every year. The first year I had beautiful flowers. I am wondering what I could be doing wrong. I used to cut them back in the fall or spring. This year I didn't and am wondering if it will make a difference this summer...I can't wait to see!
Don't cut them back, Hydrangeas bloom better on old wood. Since this year you left them alone I'm pretty sure you will see more blooms. Be sure to water, hydrangeas love water!
Hope this helps! Happy Gardening!
