Question by anrosenburg

I got have two hydrangea plants. I had them out front in large planter pots, but then moved them to the back b/c of too much sun. Now I have no flowers and just a few leaves. What can I do to save my Hydrangeas? They have sentimental value. Thank you!

Hydrangeas grow best in morning sun (at least 4 hours) and afternoon shade. Without morning sun they won't bloom for you. Try moving them gradually into morning sunshine. Start by exposing them to an hour of sun for a few days, then 2 hours, then 4. You should see some new leaves develop and (hopefully) flower buds, too. Best wishes with your hydrangeas.
