Ruffled Swan .....the semi double cousin of Wild Swan and showing the more pinky reverse...blue on Wild Swan.  lots of buds to open.  Now less tatty and more refined than first pics.  There is a "difference" 

hydrangea feeding

Depends on the colour if using seaweed.  Not at all on blues in my opinion if you have a really good named blue variety


in the ground I would  simply use fish blood and bone in early spring plus a mulch incorporating pelleted chicken manure.  A liquid feed is not necessary for hydrangea in the ground.  Water is the key thing. 


In pots I would use epsom salts and tomato fertiliser if blue In acid john innes.  if pink or red Seaweed is fine.

Just the 2 flowers but plenty of buds so think this will be a cracker in a couple of weeks 


the foliage is a delight too
