Could someone please tell me why my Hydrangea has got curled up brown leaves overnight, It was perfectly OK yesterday and the only thing that has been done to the plant was watering yesterday evening




Is it in a pot? Was it wilting severely before it was watered?

May have been just a little too late to prevent damage then, Roger. Once they wilt to a certain point, parts of the leaves die. If you can't anticipate--hard in variable weather--keep an eye on the foliage, and water as soon as the leaves lose that subtle sheen, especially the new leaves.
