Thanks Dave, so I'll wait a month or so. Thank you.

is it a bad idea to move some low azaleas and rhododendrons now? They are getting close to flowering time. I want to move them to a north facing site where plants struggle to grow and free up some space.

No Dave, I avoid pesticide use. But thanks, I'll leave it until the end of the week so.

It rained all day yesterday so I took the chance to spread a little lawn fertiliser on the grass. Sun came out this afternoon, I was wondering if it's a really bad idea to run a mower over the lawn. My guess is I better wait several days. Any advice anyone.

I assume I don't need to redig the current hydrangea ?  Just make sure the next one is dug in better.

Really delighted with the hopeful responses. I'm smiling as the hydrangea name never clicked. I have been watching it grow guys but only noticed the blackening and withering today. I think it was fine last week. So maybe the few recent cold nights has done harm.


dove, I went straight out and gave it a good watering 5 mins ago. When I planted it I put in bonemeal and ericacious compost. I hope I did the right thing? 

As for last years hydrangea stem, well it's as dead as ever I'm afraid.  So I think I'll try a limelight hydrangea too. Thanks for all the advice guys, God knows I'm needing it.

You know verdun , honestly I didn't water much as it is in the shade and everything seems to get mould around here. Too rocky under the soil. 


Do do you think I could save it if I water it? 

I really wanted to plant a limelight or Annabelle too but I've just had really no luck with hydrangeas.
