Emailed the garden centre where plant was purchased and gave them the barcode which was on the pot. Came back with Limelight, I am not so sure this is correct. Limelight is a panicula which mine doesn’t seem to be ?

That reminds me quite a bit of a paniculata known as "Siebold". While it is a close relative, and I mean VERY close, it is not the "Limelight".

It does have the same care. This article will help you with the care of Tree Hydrangeas:

It looks exactly like my Quickfire Hydrangeas if it blooms in white sprays that are long-lasting and fade to light pink and then dark pink. They attract a lot of pollinators, including flies, so I don't recommend placing it near a door to your house. I leave the flowers on all winter for aesthetics and as shelter for birds and then clip them off in spring and they bloom beautifully every year. I also sprinkle used (regular) coffee grounds around the base a few times per year to feed it.
