Answer: Sounds as though your hydrangea is going through a little transplant shock. The plant should recover, but you'll probably lose the blooms that have gotten wilty. Hold off on the fertilizer until the hydrangea gets used to its new home and begins putting out new leaves. Then fertilize only lightly; too concentrated a solution will burn the roots of a potted plant. If the petals of the flowers begin to fall off, cut the flowers and part of the stems off, to encourage more growth, and the development of new flower buds.
