Hi, I just bought a house and want to put hydrangeas in as many places as possible. I have morning sun and afternoon shade next to my shed and want to cut out a bed to plant a Quick Fire Hydrangea. However there clearly was a very large tree that once stood next to the shed. Ok to plant next to an old fairly large tree stump with long roots? Appreciate any advice!

Rotting wood robs nitrogen from soil. So some regular feedings of sulfite of ammonia would be helpful. Till wood is pretty much decomposed.

They also love regular feedings of Epsom Salt a couple times a year. It helps them bloom better.

Anything i say, could be misrepresented, or wrong.
