|You can plant your hydrangea outdoors now that the weather is warm. Prune off the faded flowers, along with some of the stem. Plant your hydrangea in a garden site that gets 4 hours of morning sun but shade from hot afternoon sunshine. Plant your hydrangea in well amended soil (mix compost into the soil) and plant it at the same soil level as it was growing in the container. Be sure to water often enough to keep the soil moist but not soggy wet. Enjoy!
