Greetings. I recently purchased a Tardiva Panicle Hydrangea. Is this a plant that I would cut back in the spring? Also, would my more typical looking hydrangea benefit from cutting back in the spring, as well? Thanks bv PS, thanks for the wonderful service.

Glad you like the service! Hydrangeas are typically pruned back in the springtime, just as the buds begin to swell on the stems. In general, prune yours back by about two thirds. The stems you leave on the plant is where new stems will develop and these new stems will produce flowers for you. Enjoy your hydrangeas!
