A week ago I picked up this very sad looking Hydrangea for .99 The tag says its a Merritt's Supreme, as soon as I got it home I watered it really well with a weak solution of miracle grow,it's incredible what some water did for it, its stunning now, a piece of it broke off and I have it in a little water, How easy would it be to grow ???? So here is my very sad looking Hydrangea that I LOVE !!!!! And I re-potted into a much larger pot. Thanks Christine

Put the cutting in damp soil that you can keep damp (not sopping wet) and you'll have a new plant. Remove lower leaves first. No need to cut to a node as hydrangeas root all along the stem.

I took these cuttings one March and look at the roots by November!

The downside is that they root so easily that you'll want to do more and more of them. I must have rooted a few hundred and just give them away now, after they're rooted.
