Advice on climbing hydrangea

Posted: 25/04/2013 at 21:21

My climbing hydrangea was put in several years ago in semi shade, it really only gets early morning sunshine, it is a really great plant that I leave to get on with it.  I leave the flowers on till the following spring when it starts to bud again then I take off the dead flower heads.  These are so pretty in the winter.  I only cut back branches that stick out alot.  Plants underneath have to grow in dry conditions and very shady

It is a great plant and I recommend it as it covers fences fairly quickly.  I do put some horse manure around the base in early spring.  Hope that helps.

Where have all the hostas gone?

Here in the Midlands, I have still got my hostas in the greenhouse, one is coming up the other is not, I thought I had lost both mine so keep hanging in there and with luck from what others have said they will appear.


should it be in leaf yet?

Can anyone help please?

I had three Eupotorium rugosum Chocolate put in my garden last September but all I have at the moment is clear white sticks where I put the plant.  Should I have something showing for the plant or have I lost them?

I have not had these plants before so would be very grateful if someone could tell me what they should be doing now?


Thank you
