My hydrangea has been planted for about a month now. It has bloomed and new blooms are forming; however, some of the leaves are turning brown.
What do I need to do?

Brown leaves can indicate over watering, especially if the leaves are still soft and pliable. If the leaves are crispy brown, they are probably sunburned. When you water your hydrangea, water deeply and then allow the top of the soil to dry out before you water again. If you keep the soil too moist it can suffocate the roots of the plant. Hope this helps you determine just what might be wrong with your hydrangea.
