Pruning a pee gee hydrangea
I have a huge and lovely limelight pee gee hydrangea. It's already in it's second season and boy it's grown quite a bit and with promises of a load of blooms this season.
One problem, I can already see that this plant may overwhelm the other plants in the border and I would like to keep it to a certain size and height without affecting it's bloom. Is there are a recommended method to pruning this plant? I'm thinking that if I were to prune the flowering branches early next spring back by a foot or more - this would produce more branches and become the flowering branches the following season. Let me know if this is the right way to do it. Thanks in advance.
