Caring for Hydrangeas
For best results, plant your Hydrangeas in early spring or fall to give the root system time to establish before the hot summer sun. They do best in an area that provides morning sun with some afternoon shade and prefer a well-draining soil with plenty of organic matter. Plan to water deeply at least once per week, and maybe more, if the weather is especially hot or dry. Fertilize in the spring with a good organic fertilizer like, Espoma Plant-tone. Amending the soil with a good compost is also helpful and a 2" layer of mulch helps keeps the soil moist during the hot dog days of summer.
