blue billows - plant in fall or wait til spring

lisahlooJuly 22, 2010

Hi all,

Is it better to plant in the spring or fall? I'd love to finish landscaping my front garden, and have space set aside for a blue lacecap. Assuming I could find them to order (I believe I decided on blue billow) for fall, would that work? If its even slightly better to wait til spring, I will!

Fall is the ideal time to plant hydrangeas- so, no need to wait months! At least, that's the case here in Georgia- but I'm almost certain the same holds true elsewhere. Planting in fall means your shrubs will have more time to settle in and build root mass before they bloom next summer.
