I understood that Jo.  

forgive me spoiling your purchase....I just have a thing about plug plants 

What's the star in your garden right now

agastaches, veronicastrums and calamagrostis Overdam.

Hydranea roblem

Posted: 10/07/2015 at 20:21 needs more water.  Hydrangeas can take as much as you can give it during the summer.  The heat, dessicating winds and roots not yet established mean its dried out

hydrangeas need good soil too.

so, water really well...make a mound around your plant and fill with water. ,let it drain.  Water again.

mulch thickly too after ground is thoroughly wet. the feed is not really that important right now....actually can do more harm than good at mo 

Whats munching my hosta ?

...including postage Jo?

for  £14 can buy 3 full size plants from several suppliers.  At summer's end you can double or triple these plants by division and still be ahead of your plugs.  

Plugs are fine for fast growing annuals but generally not for me.
