new AND old wood hydrangias

albany1(5)July 19, 2012

I have 10 hydrangias all living in different environments. Last year there were TONS of blooms on all of them.This

year remontant or not, no signs of any blooms!

We did have 4 consecutive nights of freeze in the late spring but there's nothing even on the Endless Summer

(leaves are all lovely)..

Can anyone help?????

Got any ES pics? I would try increasing fertilizer and water in the future.

Sounds like the freeze got the rest. A one-nighter of 26F in late April got 90% of my old wood buds.

Right now I don't have any pictures of the ES or David Ramsey which are also new wood.I put down 5-10-5 every spring and they've been pretty well watered (would you use a different fertilizer?)All are leafy and otherwise doing ok.Gosh darn, I hate when we have a late freeze!
I wonder if I should have burlapped them when the freeze hit...
