Hydrangea Help

Cut out any obvious dead wood and last years dry flower heads to just above new leaves.

You could cut down to the base but you would lose the flowers for this year.

Plant/weed ID please

Get them planted asap Shamrock, they will grow fast now

I soaked them over night, 15 corms.

planted them in a module tray, 12 came up of which I potted them all on.

1 rotted due to being overwatered but I have 11 lovely healthy plants now which will probably cost me somewhere in the region of £30 in the garden centre.

This packet of bulbs cost less than £3 and my time, so its well worth it, I think a lot of the problem with small corms like these is overwatering. 

Best to water a little at first then leave them until growth starts.

Ranunculus need a cooler climate being from the buttercup family, so keep them in cold storage for a little while
