wakeshine, plants all together in one pot
the lithodora flowers before the hydarangea and the cross over is short lived. Yes, the blue (subtle) theme.
leave it for now...enjoy those flowers.
more buds so flowers to come too
I too like plants balanced, etc., but in this case it will be temporary. For sure. Pruning in due time will sort that.
ironically,,here in Cornwall much of the land is acid and we can grow rhodos, camellias, and blue hydrangeas are everywhere. Here, near the coast, it is more alkaline.
Love blue flowers...have countless blues so a blue hydrangea would have been great. However, grow what suits your soil, conditions etc. offen amuses me when I see people buying red hydrangeas as well as blue ones....they seem never to be informed about the effect of their soil
my reason for potting on was simply to make a feature, to ensure it was in a soil based compost and not because it needed potting. With other lower plants being in a bigger pot would suit I think
