I have a hydrangea bush that has never bloomed. How can I get it to bloom?

Hydrangea and Pests

My hydrangea does not bloom each year. I was told changing soil would help the color of the plant to change. Is this true? How do I get my hydrangea to change color, and why doesn’t it bloom every year? How do I keep rabbits and deer from eating my new plants, such as lilac trees?

Browning, Curling Leaves

I’ve planted my hydrangeas and the leaves are turning brown and curling. What’s the problem?

This could be a number of things--too little or too much water, over fertilizing, leaf scorch (if planted in too much sun), etc. It may help to prune the plant to help rejuvenate it.

Gift Hydrangea

I received a large white hydrangea for Mother’s Day. I took off the foil and sat it outside. Now I would like to plant it in my garden. What do I have to do? Is now a good time, and if so, how deep do I plant it?

How canĀ I get the pink blooms to turn blue? Will white hydrangea also turn blue with the same treatment?

As for the white hydrangea, it's likely not going to change. hite hydrangeas aren't dependant on soil acidity for their color.

When to Fertilize Newly Planted Hydrangeas

When should I fertilize hydrangeas that I planted in early May? I live in southeast Ga. , Zone 8.

Spring is great time to fertilize, so I would do so right now. Use a fertilizer slightly higher in phosphorus to help the roots establish and the plant bloom.

Hydrangeas

I have morning sun southwest out my back patio on hot summer days and shaded evenings. I don’t want them to die.

As long as you keep them well watered, they should be fine. IF planted in containers, you can move them during the hottest part of the day.
