South Bohemia, Czech Republic
I've just bought a reduced price hydrangea, small plant in very small pot, overloaded with six large flowerheads. I just want to make sure I get this right since I managed to ruin another hydrangea by cutting off next year's flowering tips every year for the last 3 years :-(
I was planning to repot the new one now, take off the flowerheads when they die (or should I take them off now and can I take some stem as well so that I can get them in a vase?) and then leave the green growth as it is. It will need winter protection - just in the cool, empty house? 11degreesC. (I am not here in winter). I have no greenhouse and I think the garage is not frostfree. Or should it be in the dark cellar?
