    My big, beautiful hydrangea has had one bloom in the last three years. It's been being trimmed in February, is there a better time to cut it back?


    When you prune hydrangeas depends on if they bloom on new or old growth. If you have a variety like ‘Annebelle' that blooms on new growth you'll want to prune your hydrangea in December or January while the plant is dormant. If you have a hydrangea that blooms on old growth trim back the hydrangea in June. If you're not sure if you have a hydrangea variety that blooms on new or old growth bring in a picture of your hydrangea to Pike Nurseries and we can help you identify it.
