|I have hydrangas on a down slope in my backyard.
This spring I threw out handfuls of Osmekote fertilizer. The hydrangas on the first row bloomed good. The second row fair.
The third rown 0 except for 3 or 4 blooms on my Annabelle. They all get sun from about 11:00 until 2:00 pm. Last year this row did well considering the amount of sun. Was there to much nitrogen in the Osmekote?
Can it be fix?
|I'm thinking the Osmocote was washed down the slope and some of your plants didn't get the benefit of the nutrients - others may have gotten too much. I'd hold off on feeding for the rest of the year. Next spring, use a foliar feeding rather than a time release. You can spray Miracle Gro or Miracid fertilizer from a hose-end sprayer. The fertilizer will feed the leaves and the product that is absorbed into the soil will feed the roots. Best wishes with your hydrangeas!|
