Wow... Mousiegirl!  Your hydrangeas are gorgeous!  Smiley Very Happy

 

I'm so glad I decided to come back to the boards.  Seeing the results of all your hard work has been quite a treat.  Smiley Happy

 

We only have three hydrangea bushes in our yard but they're not doing very well this year.  The weather has been too harsh on them, I'm afraid.

Here at the Jersey shore, Hydrangea grow well but nothing like yours.

 

Between these and your roses, I am beyond jealous.

I got them off to a great start with Cottage Farms fertilizer for acidic plants.  The hydrangeas just loved it, the leaves turned green almost instantly, buds began setting, and they grew taller and bushier.  I have now been adding the aluminum suphate, for bluing, every other month.
