I have some general hydrangea questions - if someone could possibly help me. I have not had much luck with getting them to grow well or bloom in the past.... but am considering trying some more in a different location. I was told that I might have mine in too much shade. Do the oakleaf need more shade than the old fashioned ones? Approximately how long would it take for a plug to get large enough to bloom? What about the quart size - would it possibly bloom this year or next?
Then I had a question about the Zinfin Doll. I saw it mentioned in one post, but I am so far behind that I won't attest to reading every line of every post. Has the sale been cut back to just the 7 varieties?
Thanks! Sorry..... just trying to catch up as I am WAY behind. My husband's going to wish I hadn't come back to the sales threads
Gen I have started with a few baby hydrangea . It depends on the type most of my re-blooming babies that were
small pots bloomed that next summer. I only let them have one flower so they would grow and not go crazy with blooms.
But, once they were two I let them do what they wanted to do It is very rewarding starting with babies and watching them grow.
My only experience growing babies is the one I got from you, Barb, in fall of 2013. About six inches tall. Can't think of the name of it but it's not in this sale. Anyway, I put it in a big pot and it doubled in size last year, about 12"x12". Didn't bloom in 2014, but I bet it will this year.
my daughter is home again this weekend. not that i don;'t love it but you know you just can't get any work done when the kids are home. but i do plan on getting together a schedule with plant arrival times and what needs to ship when. by that time also i will have put up a sale thread for all the plants i have here already that could ship with anything else.
i am thinking that after each shipment i will do a quick inventory and put the first shipment plants on sale and then those could ship with the next batch of arriving plants.
What size is the Gatsby's Star? I don't see the size listed..............
Thanks for the info. I have hydrangeas (that started in all shapes and sizes) and NONE have bloomed for me yet. Planning on ordering some to order where they will actually get more sun than the others are getting and see if that helps. If that doesn't work I guess I will give up on these "easy" plants.......
