Hydrangea macrophylla prefers a sunny or semi shaded position, with shelter from cold, drying winds. Grow hydrangea plants in any rich fertile, moist soil. Improve the soil prior to planting by adding with plenty of well rotted manure or garden compost, ensuring that it is mixed in thoroughly and deeply. Alternatively plant hydrangea macrophylla in patio containers in soil based compost such as John Innes No. 3.
Water regularly until plants are fully established. Leave the faded hydrangea flower heads in place until the new buds swell in spring to protect the delicate buds from frost damage. Prune after flowering, reducing the stems to restrict their growth to the available space and to improve the shape of the plant. After pruning hydrangeas, apply a mulch of well rotted manure or compost around the base of the plant. Caution: Contact with hydrangea foliage may irritate the skin and eyes and all parts are harmful if eaten.

Unusual and stunning

Ordered in April and arrived in May. Planted it in a pot and waited. For some reason I thought it was going to be blue but it started with greenish flowers which are now turning pink, exactly like the photo. It is very unusual and stunning as it is so different from my other hydrangeas. Think it's great. Thank you.

Ordered this in April and it arrived mid May, planted it straight out, pleased to say it has thrived and has a bloom not dissimilar to the current picture, two new healthy shoots have emerged too.
