Crocus combinations

Hydrangea macrophylla 'Early Blue' & pot cover combination

  • Position: bright, filtered light & afterwards in the garden in full sun or partial shade
  • Soil: good potting compost, or outdoors in moist, well-drained, moderately fertile soil
  • Rate of growth: average to fast
  • Flowering period: mainly summer
  • Hardiness: fully hardy
  • Current height: approximately 40cm (including pot)
  • Pot covers: Includes a 16cm pot cover

    This beautiful hydrangea will be sent out in bud or flower, and it can be kept in a cool, bright room inside the house until all the flowers have faded. Then it can be planted out in the garden, where it will offer a fresh batch of flowers each year in summer.

  • Garden care: Keep well watered and feed with a balanced liquid fertiliser at regular intervals. If you plant it outside, leave the old flower heads in place through the winter. Do keep in mind however that unless the plant is grown in acidic soil, then the flower colour will change to pink in subsequent years. As the new shoots start to emerge in spring cut back a third to a quarter of the previous seasons flowering stems to the base and cut back the remaining flower heads to the first pair of buds.
