You won’t believe how well Hydrangeas take from your cuttings. Today we share the secrets on how to get them started. Watch the video now.

Are you one of the many that would love to know how to grow hydrangeas from cuttings? This popular process is known as rooting or propagating cuttings.

The good news is that it is extremely easy to do and you’ll love the results. Hydrangeas are a gorgeous flowering plant that is deciduous. They have that wonderful old fashioned appeal and you can even change their color by altering the PH of the soil – how exciting!

Without a doubt, Hydrangeas are one of our favorite flowers. They might not be the easiest to grow but they are certainly worth the effort.

Whilst they grow best in semi-shaded locations, you might be surprised to know that there are some varieties that tolerate full sun.

The Panicle Hydrangea is perhaps the most tolerant of all. It is known to cope with the heat, drought, full sun, and also the cold.

It is critical that you don’t let your hydrangeas dry out. If you do, sadly, they will wilt. If you have bushes in your garden, be sure to give them a decent deep soak. It is suggested that once or twice a week is necessary. Be sure to monitor your plants carefully.

Do You Cut Off Dead Hydrangea Blooms?

Absolutely! Just like roses, hydrangeas benefit greatly from deadheading during the blooming season. This will keep them looking fresh and make them last longer too.

Hydrangeas range in size from small bushes to larger tree-like varieties. Their colors are nothing short of breathtaking. In fact, it is said that blue is the luckiest of the hydrangea colors.

You might also be surprised to know that they contain low levels of cyanide. Whilst many use them as a cake topper, they are not edible.

 

Hydrangea Growing Tips

Before you watch the video tutorial that we have included, we thought we would go over some key growing tips. Firstly if during the process your leaves fall off, don’t despair!

The buds will sprout provided the stem is still intact. You should also keep an eye out for Slugs as they can wreak havoc on small plants. 

If you burn your leaves, cut them a little beyond the discolored area. If your stems have signs of rotting, dry them out by watering less.
