|I am turning a natural wooded area, part sun, part shade into a hydrangea planting. I have Big Daddy, Annabelle, and Penny Mac, 5 of each. What do I have to do to the soil, and what should i add to the soiul to get a good result?|
Mix in a few inches of compost or peat moss. In the woods tree roots will prevent rototilling or spading the soil very well, but with a little care you can spade up the surface a little to mix in the compost into the top few inches. Water the plants in well after planting. Give them a few weeks to get growing and then fertilize lightly with a product for acid loving plants with a light application every 4-6 weeks.
Thanks for the question. Please stop in again soon!
