Pruning hydrangeas and crepe myrtle
I live on Long Island. The weather is still relatively mild. Is is too late to deadhead the hydrangeas up to the point where I see new growth? Also, I would like to try to propagate from the crepe myrtle I have. What is the best way to do so? Thank you.

For the hydrangea, yes, you can still deadhead. This should be fine.
