Q.Depth to plant hydrangeas.

Zone 75104 | yukonjack54321@gmail.com added on March 28, 2019 | Answered

I had someone plant my hydrangeas for me and I’m not sure they left the root ball even with the top soil. They might be an inch or two past that. Should I get them to dig them up and replant them?

An inch or two is not something to be worried about. Digging them up would do much more harm than would be done by the soil line.

In fact, this is proper practice since rain will compact the soil down over time. You wouldn't want the rootball to be sticking out later, as that can cause some issues, potentially.

Your shrubs will be nice and happy as they are!
