Help! Need pruning advice for overgrown lace caps.
We rented our homestead for 2 years. I just assumed the hydrangeas would be dead when I got back, but not so. They are now about 6 ft tall, and three ft. wider than when I left. I need to prune them.
They have overtaken the walk, so I've got to prune them back. I don't want to lose my flowers for next spring.
I have lady in red. I bought other "lace cap" hydrangea labeled "Endless Summer." Also huge! These have done better than the lady in red, but they get a bit more sun! I am not entirely sure these are Endless Summer. Could have been mislabeled. They are definitely lace cap.
How do I prune them back? Need to do this tomorrow morning if possible. Thanks!
