How To Revive Hydrangea Plant

Hydrangeas are beautiful flowering shrubs that can be grown in many types of climates. They are extremely popular for their large and colorful blooms, which appear in the summer months. Because of this, they make a great addition to any home garden or landscaping project.

How To Revive Hydrangea Plant

Here is the complete process explained in detail on how to revive hydrangea plant:

Step 1:

1. Water the plant thoroughly to moisten the soil to a depth of 6 inches.

Step 2:

2. Apply a 10-10-10 granular fertilizer or a slow-release fertilizer according to label directions, and water again.

Fertilizing hydrangeas will encourage them to produce more flowers, but it won’t make them bloom any sooner than they normally would have bloomed anyway. Fertilizing after blooming is over will result in lush foliage but few flowers next year.

Step 3:

3. Prune out all dead wood and canes that are 2 years old or older as well as suckers that sprout from the base of the plant.

Remove all canes that are crossing one another or growing into one another; these are signs of overcrowding and potential disease problems for next year’s blooms. Use pruning shears to cut back any suckers that have grown from the base of the plant if you haven’t already done so in step 2 above (this step is not necessary for “Hydrangea macrophylla”).

Remove damaged wood with pruning shears and discard it.

Cut back stems by about one third, making your cuts just above a bud or node where there is new growth beginning on each stem (this step is not necessary for “Hydrangea macrophylla”).

4. Reapply an organic mulch around your hydrangeas after you’ve finished pruning them, including plants that didn’t need pruning at all, because this will help keep weeds down and will also conserve moisture in the soil around their roots during hot summer months when drought conditions are likely to occur (see Mulching & Weeds).

If you live in an area where Japanese beetles are common pests, consider planting hydrangeas in containers sunk into the ground so they’re protected from these voracious insects (see Container Gardening). If you do grow your hydrangeas in pots sunk into the ground, be sure to choose pots that are at least 18 inches deep so beetles can’t get underneath them and lay eggs on their undersides to hatch later on when young beetles emerge from those eggs looking for food sources—namely your hydrangeas!

How To Plant A Hydrangea Garden

You don’t have to have a large yard or garden space to enjoy beautiful hydrangeas; these shrubs can be grown successfully in containers as well as beds and borders too! Choose a sunny location with well-drained soil where you want your new plantings to grow, then dig holes about twice as wide as your root balls (the root balls should be left intact) before planting each shrub

so it has enough room for its roots once they’ve expanded into its new home underground; add some compost or other organic matter like peat moss or leaf mold before filling those holes back up with soil once your plants are safely planted inside them! You may also want to add some mulch around their bases once they’re settled in too since this will help keep weeds away while also helping retain moisture within their root zones too!

How To Prune A Hydrangea Bush

Prune hydrangea bushes right after flowering is complete because this is when they’re most vulnerable due to lack of nutrition stored up within their leaves during the winter months when nothing was growing on them at all! Plus cutting back dead wood now will give those leaves time to fall off naturally

without rotting first which could cause diseases like botrytis blight from overwatering later on down the road…so if you see any dead branches anywhere on your bush(s), remove them right away using pruning shears before any fungal infections start growing anywhere else on your plants!

Then cut back stems by about one third, making your cuts just above a bud or node where there is new growth beginning on each stem…and don’t forget either of these steps if you want healthy blooms next spring! You may also want to apply an organic mulch around their bases once they’re settled in too since this will help keep weeds away while also helping retain moisture within their root zones too!

How To Revive A Dying Hydrangea Plant

If one of your hydrangeas has died completely back due perhaps to cold temperatures last winter followed by warm ones this summer…or maybe even just simply due its own natural life cycle coming full circle…you’ll need two things: patience AND time…because reviving such an old shrub isn’t something anyone can do overnight no matter how much money they spend trying either! The best thing you can do initially though is take care not damage any living stems still found beneath the soil surface by digging up those roots instead using sharp spades if need be; then cover those exposed roots with fresh topsoil mixed with composted manure/peat moss/leaf

Tips for How To Revive Hydrangea Plant

Here are 5 things to take care of with respect to how to revive hydrangea plant:

1. A hydrangea plant should be stored in a cool, dark place with high humidity for about three days before you bring it back to its normal conditions.

2. You will need to put your hydrangea plant in a container that is deep enough to hold the amount of water it will need while it is being revived. It should have holes at the bottom so that the excess water can drain out.

3. Put your hydrangea plant in a cool, dark place where it won’t get too hot or cold for too long. A closet works well for this purpose. It is important that you don’t store them outside because they are susceptible to heat and moisture damage if not properly stored!

4. Put some pebbles or rocks at the bottom of your container so that there is adequate drainage when watering your plant later on after revival has taken place.

5. Add water and let it all drain out until there are no more bubbles coming from the bottom of the container. This may take a few hours depending on how much water you added initially and how big your container is! After this step, you can begin adding water again but make sure that you never add so much that there are bubbles forming at the top of your container!

Chapter 9: How To Kill And Remove Moles From Your Lawn

Moles are destructive little creatures which destroy lawns by burrowing tunnels under them and causing roots to die off. They also eat worms, grubs, insects and other small animals which live underground which makes them beneficial in some ways but can be very destructive in others!

Interesting Facts About Hydrangea

Here are 5 things you should know about hydrangea:

1. Hydrangea is a perennial plant that blooms in the summer. The flower is large, blue to pink and grows on a stalk called the flowering stem.

2. Hydrangeas are easy to grow and can be planted in almost any soil condition as long as it has good drainage. They prefer moist soil, but they do not like water-logged soil, so make sure you don’t overwater them!

3. The most common type of hydrangea is the mophead hydrangea (Hortensia macrophylla). This type of hydrangea has large flowers on strong stems that bloom for about two weeks in June and July. There are also other types of hydrangea including lacecap (Hortensia albiflora), oakleaf (Hortensia quercifolia) and panicle (Hydrangea paniculata).

4. There are more than 100 species of hydrangeas grown around the world including those from China, Japan, Korea, Russia, Turkey, France and England. In North America there are only three native species: smooth hydrangea (Hydrangea arborescens), wild hydrangea (Hydrangea aborescens) and climbing hydrangea (Hydrangea anomala subsp petiolaris). All of these have white flowers with blue or pink centers except for H arborescens which has pink flowers with white centers.

5. It takes several years for your hydrangeas to mature into full bloomers but once they do you will see lots of beautiful blooms!


I have a hydrangea that was planted this spring, and it is not doing well. It has had no blooms, and the leaves are starting to turn brown. I am wondering if I should just dig it up and start over with a new plant or if there is something else I can do to save it?

A: Hydrangeas are tough plants, but they need some attention in their first year or two. They don’t like to be moved around once they’re established. If you plant them in the ground and they don’t bloom the first year, you should leave them alone and let them grow for another season. In the meantime, fertilize them lightly every month with a good slow-release fertilizer like Osmocote. Then wait until the following year. You will probably be rewarded with an abundance of blooms!

I have a hydrangea that was in a pot. I put it outside last fall and now it is completely dead. It has no leaves on it.
