Hydrangea Bushes

Anonymous added on September 29, 2011 | Answered

I clipped my bushes to the ground last fall and this year they came up very nicely but with not many blooms, very late, which I expected this year. What should I do with them for nice blooms next season?

You should leave pruning hydrangea until the spring, leave any flower heads that have gon over also until the spring. Best way to prune for more blooms is to take each growing tip and dead head down just a couple of buds, nowhere near ground level. Hope this helps.
