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.
