The hydrangea is a flowering shrub that will enchant your garden with its bloom from June to October. It begins with buds that open into large, beautiful pink or blue spheres. Its decorative foliage is adorned with brilliant colors in the fall. Easy to grow, the hydrangea promises to bring sweetness and romance to your garden.

Place the hydrangea in a sheltered spot in the shade with enough light but not in full sun which could burn the plant. Hydrangea is a hardy plant that can withstand temperatures below -15°C, you can cover it with a veil in winter to protect it in case of very strong frost.

Plant your hydrangeas when the weather is mild, preferably in early fall or spring. Hydrangeas prefer acidic to calcareous soils, so combine garden soil and heather soil, to which you can add compost and sand.

If you plan to plant several hydrangeas, make sure to space them sufficiently (about one meter). Then dig the planting hole, which should be three times as large as the root ball. To help keep the soil cool, place a layer of organic mulch at the base of the plant. Finally, water your hydrangeas generously over the next few weeks.

Hydrangeas need relatively cool soil, so water regularly throughout the summer, especially during dry spells. If it is grown in a pot, it will need to be watered more frequently, as the substrate dries out more quickly than in the ground. Be sure to drain off standing water to prevent the roots from being in an overly humid environment.

Pruning hydrangea keeps it healthy and improves the quality of its bloom. You can do this every year in the fall and late winter. In the fall, prune lightly to protect it from possible frosts. Prune more heavily at the end of winter to promote fall bloom.

Cut the flowers at the end of their cycle, without touching the leaves, to allow the plant to replenish its reserves. Cut off only the damaged ones and divide the rhizomes if the iris seems less flowery.

Irises do not need to be watered if the soil is well drained and the location is sunny. As for fertilizer, except for a small amount at planting, it is not necessary to add any.

As irises have a relatively short flowering period, choose remontant varieties to enjoy spring and summer blooms.
