Use potting soil rather than garden soil for all your containerized plants. It's true that plants in containers can suffer root damage if left outdoors in the winter time. You can sink the pot into the ground to help protect it, especially if you can find a spot near the foundation of your house or garage. If that's not an option, you can place your hydrangea in the garage for the winter, or take it indoors and grow it as a houseplant.
