Hydrangea flowers just starting to get a touch of pink around the edges. It's got so many flowers this year after a poor showing last year due to getting frosted 🌸 #hydrangea-altona-pink

comment
jendren

Mine is like this Jane and I know I’m a lot further North than you but I tend to play safe with these things. I am waiting until March when I hope it will be warmer. I haven’t pruned my roses yet as we keep getting frosts - eg last night and they say there is a very cold system coming this week. So I’d keep it tucked up and warm for another couple of weeks. Hope this helps.

To be honest Jane I only give my hydrangeas a good old prune every couple of years I leave the heads on until the last frost and even last year we still had a late frost which burnt the new buds that had come through so I would be tempted to leave it for a couple of years give it time to get established ☺️

I asked the same question to a gardener at the York Gate Garden yesterday Jane and his reply was most emphatic, he doesn't prune them until April where he'll take a 1/3 off to a 1/2 and remove any spindly or inward growing branches. I think that makes sense to me. @pelly

I just cut them, pop them in a vase of water for a few days and then just stand them in an empty vase and let them do their thing Sue, I don’t cut them all off, only if there’s a lot left on the shrub Laura @susanhumphrey333 @columbiariver

This was shop bought so flowered early, the flowers are fading fast so should I prune it back to the new shoots? #advice 🤔🤔🤔

comment
Ladybird123

As it is early you can prune down to the new buds as it was shop brought it might have been forced to flower for quick sell. When your big mops have finished flowering on plant leave on to protect new buds from frost then take old flower mops off in the spring down to the new buds.🐞

Good question. I got one in bloom in Feb. I pruned it back and it's in the ground. Hope I didn't damage it, but it seems very happy and has new growth. Getts lots of water and feed. I'm a novice. Just flying by the seat of my pants, as dad used to say.
