The Q&A Archives: pruning hydrangea

Question: I would like to know when, or if, I should prune my hydrangea. It is the Endless Summer variety. I live in zone 4, northern Michigan. Also what kind of fertilizing schedule should I follow?
Thank you very much.

Answer: Endless Summer hydrangea produces flowers on both old and new wood. During the season, to encourage rebloom, remove spent flowers, and some of the stem. This will encourage new growth which will result in nearly continuous blooming all summer long. Feed your hydrangea once in the spring with a 20-20-20 in amounts as indicated on the fertilizer label. Enjoy your Endless Summer!
