Ha, I'm very much a beginner gardener, but during the very cold January I ordered 6 of these Hydrangea's which just arrived, 2 are the same, 4 are different. I'm really excited but I know nothing about taking care of them. Some are pink, some are blue and one is purple. I guess I understand if I want them blue I need to add aluminum sulfate? There is one that is supposed to be purple? I guess less aluminum sulfate?
I have a row of four hydrangeas that have never bloomed but they are planted where it is very shady next to a retaining wall. Last year one plant had one bloom. I don't know why they haven't bloomed. They were planted here when we moved in a couple years ago and die back every year. Lots of foliage. So I am a little worried about the new ones but I am planting in a different spot, that gets some sun and some areas get no direct sun but it is bright. The one I got don't have huge root balls. What advise would you give me :)
The pictures are of the new plants I just got. The other pics are the existing Hydrangeas next to the retaining wall.
