Hydrangeas

5 posts in this topic

My mother in-law has a couple Hydrangeas and they have some wood stems. There is some new growth coming out of the ground by the stems. Wondering if she should prune the woody stems off?

Yes,

The hydrangeas will flower better off of the new growth. I prune mine and customers down in the spring to about 4-6" I always prune them just as the new leaves start to pop.

A lot of people prune hydrangea's back to the ground ever year. They will do fine either way.

We put in one last year that the rabbits pruned to the ground. So far nothing! Is this dead, or could it still be trying to come up?
