Hydrangea Leaf Issues

Posted: 24/04/2017 at 16:41

Thanks. I potted it on a couple of weeks ago. I'll keep it in a shadier spot. I think that might be the answer as the other one looks fine and that's in a shadier place.

Thanks Lyn,

No it's outside, in a place which catches afternoon sun. I'll move it to somewhere a bit shadier!

Hello all,

I have a hydrangea in a pot. It did fine last year, and there is a second one that I'm treating exactly the same. But the leaves have started to curl. 

Any thoughts would be gratefully received.

It is! It flowers prolifically and each flower gradually fades from yellow to pink.

Thank you!

Yes, I knew it wasn't going to be a whopper. I'll be patient!

Thanks both.

Yes, I am doing that actually. I'm on the diagonal, and will bend them closer to horizontal when they get to the right place. I used that exact video in fact!

So should I not care that the main canes end in flower buds? They'll grow longer nevertheless?

Hi all,

I have a climbing rose which is just coming into its second spring. It's growing rather slowly, but seems healthy. However, the main canes tend to terminate with flower buds rather than to keep growing outward.

Should I cut out the buds to encourage the canes to elongate, or how should I approach it?

Thank you!
