About Bulk Hydrangea

Hydrangeas are a fantastic choice for a wide variety of locations in the garden, including group plantings, shrub borders, and containers. There is an abundance of varieties (it seems like every year, breeders present us with more options!), and gardeners have limitless expectations regarding the size and color of the blooms. Pay attention to the species, which are defined below, in order to get an idea of how your hydrangea will grow, as different species require different kinds of care. When you are prepared for something, your enjoyment of it will be that much greater.

These elegant plants are simple to cultivate, can thrive in almost any kind of soil, and produce an abundance of blooms in addition to having some of the most breathtakingly beautiful flowers of any shrub in existence. Clear blue, vibrant pink, icy white, lavender, and rose blossoms—sometimes all blooming on the same plant—beguile with their colors.

 

Where to Plant Hydrangeas

  • The majority of hydrangeas do best when grown in soils that are rich in nutrients, have good drainage, and receive an abundance of water. To improve the quality of the soil, add compost.
  • Hydrangeas, in general, do best when given filtered sunlight. In a perfect world, they will be exposed to the sun all morning, but then they will be given some protection from the scorching heat of the midday sun in the afternoon. This is especially true for the Bigleaf hydrangea, also known as H. macrophylla, which is susceptible to wilting due to the large size of its leaves. Some of the varieties can even thrive in direct sunlight.
  • Depending on the variety, hydrangeas should be planted anywhere from three to ten feet apart. Always leave adequate space between plants, taking into account how large they will grow.

FAQ

When to prune hydrangeas?

  • Planting hydrangeas in the fall is recommended, with planting in the spring coming in second place. In order to ensure that this shrub has sufficient time to develop a robust root system before the intense heat of summer or the bitter cold of winter, planting should take place during the milder shoulder seasons.
  • When planting the shrubs, do so either very early in the morning or late in the afternoon. The temperature is generally lower, and there is a reduced risk that the plant will experience heat stress as a result of direct sunlight.

How to care for hydrangeas?

When you go to the nursery to pick out your hydrangeas, make sure to look for ones that have vibrantly green leaves and blooms that are full of life. Callie Bladow, the production director at BloomThat, recommends performing a visual inspection of the petals to look for any signs of sun damage, such as brown spots. “Additionally, when cold storage of cut flowers is involved, it is important to keep an eye out for petals that have turned dark because this may be an indication that the blooms have come into contact with the side of a refrigerator. You should look for a flowering hydrangea that has a sturdy texture rather than one that is mushy or spongey.” If you select a bouquet that is in good condition, you should expect it to last for up to two weeks.

 

How to care for hydrangeas?

  • Make sure that hydrangeas receive an adequate amount of water for the first year or two after they have been planted, as well as during any drought that may occur.
  • Throughout the entire growing season, you should water at a rate of one inch per week. Instead of sprinkling water on the ground at a shallow depth, it is preferable to deeply water the plants three times per week. This stimulates the growth of roots.
  • The bigleaf and smooth varieties of hydrangea need more water than the other varieties, but all of them do better with consistent moisture.
  • If the soil is overly dry, the leaves of the plant will wilt, and flowering will be stunted because of the lack of water.
  • Utilize a soaker hose to provide thorough watering while preventing excess moisture from reaching the flowers and leaves.
  • In order to protect hydrangeas from disease and get the most out of their plants, it is best to water them first thing in the morning.
  • The addition of organic mulch around your hydrangeas will help to maintain a moist and cool soil environment, will add nutrients over time, and will improve the soil’s texture.

When do hydrangeas bloom?

When in the year do hydrangeas come into full bloom? To answer your question, that is entirely dependent on the type. Because hydrangeas are such adaptable shrubs, their growing season extends well beyond the window of time during which their blooms are open and visible to the naked eye. After the blooms have died off, certain types of hydrangea shrubs, such as oak leaf hydrangeas, have very beautiful foliage in the fall.

 

When to prune hydrangeas in ontario?

The season of autumn has officially arrived, which means that winter is rapidly approaching (I know, don’t say it!). In the past few weeks, we have experienced a number of cold spells, and some areas have even been issued frost warnings. It’s not the time of year to wallow in self-pity over the impending snow, slush, ice, and bone-chilling winds; instead, the fall is prime time for bird watching, harvesting, and, of course, pruning.

A yearly prune may not be necessary for all of the plants in our garden, but it is definitely necessary for some of them. Take the iris as an example: if you haven’t had it cut recently, it’s possible that it’s providing a safe haven for fungus and borers that are just waiting for the right moment to strike.

Now, let’s talk about hydrangeas, which are lovely additions to any garden but can be difficult to prune effectively. The question is whether you do or whether you do not.
