new hydrangea 'mom'
hiya! i'm quite happy to have finally gotten one and it's gorgeous! i'm not sure exactly which type it is, i'm pretty sure it's a lacetop or mophead based on pictures and research though. it's a deep pink with deep green leaves and i got her from home depot.
now on with my questions: (and yes, i did search this forum)
- i'm anxious about transplanting it and am hearing conflicting info about when to do it - fall, or anytime if it's in a container to be transplanted. she's in a 5 gallon container.
- it has big blooms and big leaves, and upon inspection it seems like the leaves are blocking proper growth and formation of the blooms and other branches. so would it be ok to cut/prune the leaves?
- what's the best kind of fertilizer to use for hydrangeas in general, as i plan to get more.
thanks for your help!
