Three Seasonal Tips for Healthy Hydrangeas

Tip 1 – Water in Summer

Hydrangeas look their best when grown in a rich, moist (but not water-logged) soil.

Tip 2 – Mulch in Winter

A mulch of well-rotted manure or compost helps to protect new shoots and keeps weeds down.

Tip 3 – Feed in Spring

The magnesium and iron in Vitax Hydrangea Food will encourage bigger, better flowers. You can also use
a nutritious feed for acid-loving shrubs, such as Miracle-Gro
Azalea, Camellia & Rhododendron Continuous Release
Plant Food

This works especially well for
blue-flowered hydrangeas which love an acid soil, whereas alkaline soil suits
hydrangeas with naturally pink flowers.
