We moved into a home that has beautiful Hydrangeas. The flowers are passing and it looks like its time to cut them back. Any help on how to prune it well for great blooms next season? Blessings!

Hi Fredrika

I am wondering what colour flower your hydrangeas produce and if you need to do anything to get the colour?

Thanks

Hi Fredrika

Assuming your Hydrangeas are old growth, if you look down a stem, you will see new buds developing. some of the buds will probably be small, while some will be larger and stronger looking. Identify the strong looking buds and prune just above them. These strong looking buds are the ones that will produce the best growth and the best flowers next season.

If the flowering has occurred on new growth (growth from this season) you may not see any strong buds. Just prune about one third - just above a node.

Good luck with your hydrangeas :) I have just found a video that you might find useful. I have added a link to the video here.

regards

Janelle
