I love Hydrangeas!

They have such big, beautiful blooms. They bloom all summer long. They’re great for flower arrangements. And they come in my favorite color…blue!

What’s not to love?

I’ll tell you what…when you plant one in your garden, making sure it is well taken care of so you can have more of those big beautiful blooms. You get excited when the leaves start coming out. Watch while the plant grows and looks really healthy. Wait patiently for those big beautiful blooms to appear. ..and what happens? Nothing! Nada! Zilch! Not a bloom to be seen.

I think it’s one of the biggest disappointments I’ve had in my garden. So I finally decided to find out what to do about it. And I’m sharing what I found with you, in case you have the same problem.

  • I’m not sure what kind of hydrangea I have the leaves of course are green and come to a point the flowers are creamy white with a touch of very light pink! Gorgeous ! I noticed they usually bloom on old wood. We were getting buds, Then the weather turned cold again and the buds look dead. I have noticed new growth from the base of the plant. What should I expect next. For the first five years all I got was green leaves. Then I added some fertilizer one time during that year and next year I got one beautiful bloom, the next year I saw several blooms coming on but before they bloomed, The weather turned cold and I never got to see them, so sad. What should I expect now?

    • Hi Connie…Unfortunately, late frosts are hard on hydrangeas that bloom on old wood. It should be able to grow back up from the ground but you probably won’t get any blooms this year. Since the fertilizer seemed to help, I would add some more this spring. Hopefully your plant will recover enough to bloom next year. In the future, if a late cold spell is in the forecast, try covering your hydrangea with a tarp or light blanket. That can prevent the buds from being damaged. Hope this helps!
