Early Spring Care for your Hydrangeas
This winter has proven to be exceptionally mild and we assume that the current warm weather will continue. Generally, this does not adversely affect most of our hardy landscape plantings. However, if prolonged unseasonable warm temperatures continue into early spring, and a warm spell is followed by an extremely cold, frosty night some hydrangeas, which are hardy as well as disease resistant, can suffer potential bloom loss due to frost damaged stems occurring at the site of sprouting flower buds.
We noticed this occurrence in some gardens early last spring, 2016. Therefore, it may be wise to take some precautions designed to protect those plants which could be potentially harmed.
