This time of the year hydrangeas (aka Christmas roses) are decorating gardens across the country. It makes an incredible cut flower for the festive table too. But what if you are struggling to grow yours or want a specific colour?
Try these tips:
- The more acidic your soil (lower than 6.0) the more blue or lavender in colour your hydrangeas will appear. The more alkaline (higher than 7.0) the more pink or red they will turn. Soil with a pH balance of between 6 and 7 will turn your hydrangeas bluish-pink.
- Plant your hydrangeas in a sheltered spot that gets loads of morning sunlight but no to little afternoon sun.
- Add organic material to your beds and ensure good drainage and your hydrangeas will flourish.
