So you think both plants will be ok if I get the soil right ie one in full sun and one in mostly shade? 

Thanks for your replies.

Sorry, i should add that the only reason why I have been watering it so often is becuase its been so dry and warm until the past week or so.

I'm giving it a fairly good soaking most nights. The soil isn't great. I've not put compost or manure in it. I've just put some fish blood and bone down.

any idea on why my other one isn't blooming?

Hello, I have one hydrangea planted in my garden, the tips of the leaves are going brown as are the flowers. I'm watering it most nights but it's not making a difference. It is in sunlight most of the day, could this be the reason? I have a second hydrangea planted elsewhere in the garden, in a shadier spot that doesn't get much sunlight. This one has not flowered this year and is showing no signs of any flowers. As I'm completely new to gardening would appreciate any advice on how to fix these issues. I think hydrangeas are possibly my favourite plants and would love to see them thriving. Thanks in advance

Wow! I had no idea so many plants could tolerate a shady spot. Looking forward to relaxing in a nice colourful garden next summer!

Thank you so much. I'd not thought of using google to be honest. I'll have a look later!
