Q.Must You \’deadhead\’ Hydrangeas To Get Another Set Of Blooms After The First Bloom

Zone Sw65na | DGJN added on July 21, 2020 | Answered

I have a hydrangea plant in a large pot. It gets partial sun for most of the morning. It’s had a fabulous bloom so far but now the blooms are fading. Do I need to deadhead it in order to promote a second blossoming or, if that’s the only flowering for the year, should I leave it to die back?!
