Getting Hydrangeas to Flower Early

Anonymous added on May 12, 2016 | Answered

I have bought a number of hydrangea (Macrophylla) pot plants to potentially use as table centerpieces for a wedding in mid July. They are looking healthy and have flower buds starting to show. As July would be early for hydrangeas to flower, would I be able to force an earlier flowering by moving them into a greenhouse? If so, when would be a good time? Thanks

According to my research, you can cajole blooming by stabbing the roots of the hydrangea and by warming the plants as you proposed. Here is a link that will explain further:
