Hydrangea desease ?

Posted: 30/04/2017 at 08:44

It's simply that the new young growth has been damaged by the frost and chilly winds of last week.  Your plants will recover 

It does seem that hydrangeas have been particularly affected this year; probably because the mild March means that they leafed up early ... we've had several queries and similar photos.

I know you mean well but please don't move toads around - they are where they are because they have found somewhere that meets their needs. Moving them to a new place could be harmful. Toads spend most of their lives on the land - they only need water for breeding - they will find it when they need it. The same goes for frogs, newts etc.
