Please help me rescue my hydrangeas!
This is my first year with hydrangeas , i have 2 new ones- limelight and annabelle. Limelight is in full sun, i just love it but it turned from ivory to brown rather quick, and now the leaves have almost all fallen off. Is this shock from being planted? I believe i got it in august.Ive been watering well, i thought. Advice?
Also annabelle is in a lovely shady with a little am sun, she is positivly sulking, flowers dried up, leaves crunchy. She wasnt planted in fabulous soil, its rather clayish. I did add soil from a better part of my garden when planted and today i topped the soil with leftover tree and shrub soil i had to give a little more nutrient. Can i cut it down to a foot to give it a chance to work on its roots? I really hope they come back next year! Ill do whatever it takes! Thank you fabulous garden friends!
