Hydrangea cuttings on behalf of Bruce Weston

Bruce asked this on the Geranium phaeum thread and I thought it might get missed

Can I take hydrangeas cuttings now and winter them in the greenhouse ready for next year?


This winter

No, you can't predict.

Someone will though, every year, and every year people forget how wrong the previous predictions have been. The met office gave up long range forecasts for that reason. Last year we were predicted a very bad winter. It was the first winter in my recollection that our area got no snow at all.

How could berries on a plant predict what is going to happen? They tell us what has happened.

Hi Phaidra, we're not chalk but very alkaline and they do OK here. They grow naturally in water meadows and moisture will be more important than soil type. They can cope with a winter drowning. Once dormant in summer the need will not be so great. Or, at least, that's what I assume from how they perform here.
