can you divide hydrngeas?
I am not sure that the photo does them justice, but the front of our house is lined with Hydrangea bushes that are 6 ft tall and ten feet deep by mid summer. I do love them, but they are a bit overwhelming. By mid summer you can't even see the front steps. So the question is can I divide them or what would be the effect on the plants of removing the plants that are too close to the house and stairs? Right now I need to hack them back 3 times a summer to be able to access the stairs.
