Question: How do you keep a blue hydrangea blue?

Answer: Blue hydrangeas will remain blue in acidic soils but will begin to turn pink if your soil is alkaline. Miracle Gro has a fertilizer that has acid in it. I use it about every two weeks for for 2-3 months beginning in early spring and the flowers my hydrangea produces are blue. Give it a try!
