Hydrangea options

Tonks

....A  couple of things first.  

hydrangeas can be absolutely superb when given conditions they need, viz., good moist soil and some sort of shade.  Too often they look terrible sidelined to full sun, poor soil, unpruned or over pruned.  And wrong varieties planted

can you provide these conditions?  If not no matter what varieties you choose they will still be "rubbish".  For a pink variety you need alkaline soil.

Why Jo?

presentable, fresh ideas, knowledgeable.  He has worked on a shoestring for most of his progs.  As far as Im aware this is his first tv...compare to others on their first efforts.

i have enjoyed all the programmes and Danny Clarke is a breath of fresh air.  Hope he gets another series and is featured in other garden programme.  Perhaps presenting GW with Monty.....?
