Hydrangea's have become a modern classic, ideal for making a statement of intent in the garden and they are great for acting as the backdrop to a colourful border or patio display. Their long-life flowers and versatility make then suitable for any garden of any size.Hydrangeas can be grown in fertile, well drained soil and often prefer a shady location. It is also worth thinking about how much exposure the area you wish to plant them in will have towards strong winds, as they can often limit new growth in spring. Make sure that the hydrangea receives lots of water when the summer comes. Hydrangeas are very low maintenance and will need little pruning, but can be done in spring as new shoots appear. The old shoots should be left in the winter and not until spring. Apply a mulch annually to protect from winter colds.
