Hydrangeas in June, 2003

Pruning in Progress, July, 2008:

Pruning needs to be finished by August 1 to assure next years blooms on hydrangeas that bloom on the previous year’s wood. These will likely return to the size they were before pruning. Hydrangeas never have to be pruned except to remove dead wood. Usually I remove the dried blossoms in the spring, but not this year.

    My Granny used to grow hydrangeas, Mama too, but not so many as Granny.I have not been able to keep any hydrangeas alive. They die from the heat, the sweet soil, or something.I am envious. They are so pretty.Janie
