What's wrong with my Hydrangea?
Ontario, Canada, Canada
First - let me say that some kids came by in the middle of the night and took something to my plants - like a stick maybe and chopped at my plants. This plant now has a hole(bare spot in it) and the leaves in the area where they chopped are what is in this pic. I trimmed the broken stems and cleared away the damages leaves etc. and now this is what is happening to it. Also - since we are in Sept you aren't supposed to prune these because you will lose the buds for next year - so any suggestions as to how to fill the hole? I think I'm going to have to prune it and just risk having no flowers next year. Thoughts?
