|We want to transplant a hydrangea bush that is currently in our front yard to behind our house - part sun/part shade. When is the best time to transplant the hydrangea and how do we properly prepare the soil? Thank you Ginny OHIO|
|You can move your hydrangea either in the spring or in the fall; both seasons typically have cool weather and abundant rain, which will help your plant become established with the least amount of stress.|
Plant in any average garden soil that has good drainage. If your soil is clayey and tends to hold water, amend a large area (not just the planting hole) with compost or aged-manure. This will help it drain quickly and will add some nutrients to the soil.
Best wishes with your move!
