Hydrangeas hit with hard freeze
Now what? I had some blooms still and of course leaves, they are all black and droopy now. Do I just need to cut it back or just leave it alone? It must have happened last year as well, because I only tried covering them a few times, when the first frosts hit, but I dont remember them looking so bad last year, and then I read that they dont really need to be protected (ie: covering with sheets/blankets/plastic etc). So I left them alone and they came back big and strong this year. I also did not prune them last year. So apparently they are growing on old wood?
I got these from a box store several years ago and they have been in the ground 2 years now.
Any thoughts? suggestions? I appreciate your input.
