How Do You Take Care Of A Potted Hydrangea

Caring for potted hydrangeas is essential to ensure beautiful blooms. For best results, give your plants bright indirect sunlight and water regularly, allowing the soil to dry out between watering sessions.   

A balanced fertilizer should be applied every two weeks throughout the growing season for lush growth and vibrant blooms. Additionally, your plants need pruning for strong flowering stems; remove older stems after flowers have faded and shortened leftovers by one-third. 

Leaf yellowing or wilting can indicate diseases such as powdery mildew or leaf spot; treat with an appropriate fungicide. Avoid excessive overwatering or underwatering that causes root rot and other environmental issues like low pH levels from hard tap water. 

Potted hydrangeas need regular care to last and thrive through their bloom cycle – which means taking the time to know their needs, meeting those needs on a timely basis, and providing optimal conditions when possible. With proper upkeep, you’ll enjoy a stunning show of blooms all season long!
