Please help me save my hydrangea
My dh has been at it with the weed eater again . I am down from 33 to 17 hydrangea in the bed I put in last year. ff white out is looking dead. Its been all cut down to the ground exept one stem and that stem has been debarked all the way around from the ground up to about 4 inchs. Is there any way to save it? The one stem still left on the plant is not only debarked but looks just as dead at the stems that are laying unattached on the ground beside it. I was thinking about heavily multching it but on second thought wouldn,t that made it grow roots up the stem instead of below ground level? Would it help if I taped it?
