I bought a lacecap for £1 a couple of years ago and its flowered for the first time and is a lovely mauve--- its in a pot do you think it would go bluer if I gave it an ericaceous feed?, the Heucheras are nice i'm thinking of getting some more they are such lovely colours these days

Thanks Yorkshire..
Yes Pam, I think an ericaceous feed would be likely to encourage your pink hydrangea to produce flowers with a bluer hue...

Good combination, TT. I am still waiting (not very patiently!) for my hydrangea flowers to open - I don't think they are going to be blue this year, they look white! I love heucheras too and they seem to like my back garden.

Good luck with your hydrangeas, Gee...
I've been battling for weeks, to keep mine watered !

I accidentaly snapped a few branches off our hydrangea about 6 weeks ago Terra. I popped them in water and they are still looking OK but no roots have formed from them yet. I am still waiting......and hoping any advice my friend? :-)

Hi Richard...
Can you put the branches into damp compost ?
Take off a lot of the leaves....
I've grown hydrangea cuttings in compost in the past...
not tried in water ...

15 Jul, 2010

 

I will try that Terra it sounds a good method especially as you have had success with it - thanks alot :-)

15 Jul, 2010

 

Good luck with your cuttings Richard :o)

Love this combination colourwise...i agree, about the watering Tt, the
Hydrangea`s do like plenty of it, as well as lots of feed....: ~ )))

16 Jul, 2010

 

Lovely TT. Is that a hebe in the background? Love the combination of colours.

16 Jul, 2010

 

Hi Freesia... Thank you...
yes ... I give my hydrangeas lots of water... thirsty plants !

Thanks Macpat.... Yes a hebe in the background... Bought it in aid of charity, as a very tiny plant... Now it has lots of leaves, but it hasn't yet flowered... so no identification at this stage ...

Do you know what variety that is? I really like the lacecap hydrangeas but there are only a few varieties that do well where I live.

11 Dec, 2010

 

Hello Rk...
The hydrangea above is a mystery plant I purchased from a stall at a dog show.... so unfortunately I don't have the name ..

... but there are more hydrangeas on my blogs:
21st July, 2010 "Welcome Rain.. Yes and No"
and
29th July, 2010 "Garden Guests".

I'll try to name some of those if you wish... one already on there is identified... Hydrangea serrata Blue Bird...

I hope this helps.
