The Q&A Archives: Yellow Leaves On Hydrangea

Question: Hello
I recently brought Lace cap hydrangea lanarth white. It is a beautiful plant. I planted it in rich soil in an area that is it receives am sun. Some leaves are starting to turn yellow. I am keeping it moist and can't figure on what I am doing wrong. Any help would be appreciated. Thank you

Answer: It is possible that you are overwatering the plant or may have overfertilized it. Check the soil with your finger when deciding when to water. The soil should be moist but not soggy sopping wet. Also, any fertilizer should be applied only at the rate recommended on the label. Overfertilizing is no better than underfertilizing and can in fact be harmful. I hope this helps you trouble shoot.
