Caring for Tuff Stuff Ah-Ha® Mountain Hydrangea
Hydrangeas do well in areas that have well drained consistently moist soil that is free of compaction. prepare your soil by loosening it up with tilling or digging and then mulch well around the flowers to discourage mowers and other traffic. These hydrangeas should be pruned back int he spring removing any growth that isn't green when scratched with a thumbnail, but they can be trimmed to about 1 ft. to keep a tighter more compact appearance. Apply a slow release fertilizer in the spring for best results.
