Here’s a garden mistake I made that turned into a nice surprise.
Other than bare branches, don’t start snipping and pruning your big leaf hydrangeas now or you’ll cut away any chance of having any blooms next year.
For all the fuss about the trouble with old fashioned pink and blue hydrangeas this year, there’s a stand out in the garden that’s doing just dandy after our harsh winter.
If you left the heads on hydrangeas, let the grasses wave in the wind, and didn’t cut every perennial to the ground when it turned brown, you have reason to celebrate each time it snows.
Does wilting mean watering? That depends. When you see plants with droopy leaves – look at the time of day.
The right plant in the right spot shouldn’t need to be babied. Good gardeners raise their plants to find their own way to bloom and grow and thrive.
