Pruning Hydrangeas 101

Pruning Hydrangeas 101

Pruning your hydrangeas is paramount if you want big healthy flowers. I planted my hydrangies 4 years ago.

I let them grow for the first 3 years and this last spring I pruned them. My bushes came back thicker, more healthy and had way bigger flowers.

Anya over on instagram shared a great pruning image (below) which I followed a year ago. I hope this can help you as much as it helped me.

***HYDRANGEA ANNABELLE- WHEN AND HOW TO PRUNE IT*** Pruning between March-April _______________________________ Dry flowers protect your plants from frost, so it is recommended to leave them over winter and start pruning anytime between March and April. Annabelle blooms on new wood so dormant pruning does not reduce blossoms. If you cut your hydrangeas all the way back to the ground, your plants will produce less flowers, but they’ll be very large. If you cut back 1/3 of the plant, your hydrangeas will produce more flowers and they will be smaller. I personally prefer smaller blooms on sturdier stems and I only cut back 1/3 of the plant. I’ll share a video about it in few weeks time. . . . . . . . . . #anyathegardenfairy #mygardenthismonth #inmygardentoday #mygardentoday #gardeninspiration #garden #hydrangeaannabelle #gardenersworld #gardeningtips #homeandgarden #englishcountrygarden #mygloriousgardens #gardengreatorsmall #hydrangea #hydrangeas #lovehydrangeas #hydrangealove #hydrangealover #pruninghydrangeas #gardeningmakesmehappy
