Hydrangea Leaf Issues

Keep it well watered and in the shade, especially when they are young.  Does it need repotting, if so ,do it now before it puts on too much growth.

Don't put her off, I've laughed so much over all these threads in what would have been a very miserable and difficult time. πŸ˜€

Difference between potting mix and compost

I never new what those high sided pews were forπŸ˜€ I suppose in those days they had to sit through a two hour sermon, anyone would be desperate after that.

I would suggest the OP goes down to Tesco or Morrisons and buy those herbs in pots, plunge them into bigger pots in any compost she chooses from the local GC or even buy it from Morrisons.

Have you got that inside, it looks like the sun has scorched it, if in, it's got to go out very quickly, not in the sun, they do better in the shade. 

If the roots haven dried out you can cut the tatty bits off and it will shoot out again.

Slugs love those and Echinacea, and lupins and .....😱 you could try putting just two grains of slug pellets on each plant, you may find the slime trail then. 

Can you identify this?

I also have it in my 'lawn' but I love it!  To each his/her own, I guess!  My garden is of the cottage/wildlife variety, though ( for which read 'scruffy and unkempt! ) so it doesn't matter!

 Sounds like my garden, I have huge areas of stinging nettles and brambles I'm never going to get round to taming, I call them my wildlife areas.
