I purchased 3 hydrangeas from Almost Eden: Dooley, Penny Mac and Cheery Explosion. They were good sized starts at a good price.

I re-potted all in trade gallon pots and plan on planting in the garden this fall (in the greenhouse until then). Judging from the original pot size vs the size of the plant, I was not surprised to find that they were root bound. In this case root bound was good, it meant that the roots were well established. Very pleased with these plants from Almost Eden.

Congrats. I have seen great "commercial" pictures of Cherry Explosion... meaning, in ads. Hope the real thing is like those! Hurray! You have been geting a lot of hydrangeas! Hope you do not run out of shady space ever.

Must be nice to have a lot of time for planting. Down here, temps start to hit the 90s in May and it becomes too hot to be outside after 10 or 11am so I cease to do yard work or buy any plants until September. Have 2 potted shrubs to plant and the clock is ticking for me.
