Growing Calendar for Hydrangea Plants Collection - Shrub
Delivery: Early March to Early November
Hydrangeas thrive in shade so they are perfect for moist soil in shaded borders and containers. This red white and blue collection is sure to bring any garden to life, even a shady patio!
Hydrangea Madame Emile Mouillere. One of the best mophead hydrangeas. The flowers are pristine white when they first appear becoming tinged with pale pink as they age. Vigorous and healthy, Madame Emile Mouillere looks marvellous in a moist, semi- shaded border or grown in a large container on a shady patio.
Hydrangea Renate Steiniger. A showy hydrangea with flowers that turn to the most brilliant blue as they open. Keep the wonderful blue colour by growing this hydrangea in acid soil.
Hydrangea Dark Angel. Sensational in a container this hydrangea is one of our best selling shrubs. With bright lacecap flowers that darken to red as they age contrasting well with the rich, dark copper foliage.
Plant into humus-rich, moisture retentive soil. Hydrangeas can change colour depending on the acidity of the soil so if you garden on alkaline soil grow the blue hydrangeas in a container of ericaceous compost.
Keep plants well watered especially in dry weather.
Keep faded flowers on the stems over winter to protect buds from frost. The dried flower heads also look superb in winter arrangements.
Prune in spring, cut flowering stems back to a healthy pair of buds.
On established plants prune out a third of old stems in spring to encourage fresh new growth.
Offer - Hydrangea Collection Red, White, and Blue Mix
Shrubs offer visual interest all year round – whether in full leaf, full bloom or with bare stems set against the winter sky.
If you want to add height to your garden and increase the vertical interest consider planting a tree in your garden. There are trees particularly suited for gardens which don’t grow out of proportion to your property or develop too thick a canopy that blocks out sunlight.
