Hello all,
I have 3 hydrangeas in pots and originally they were to be planted in ground; however the spot for them is not ready and won't be until next week. The 3 are newly potted (just arrived today) and since the area is not ready for them, I potted them.

My question is this - next week when the bed is complete and ready would it be OK to transplant or do I need to wait until they have gone dormant?

As always any and all advice is appreciated.

RE: Transplanting

I just transplanted mine and planted a new one and they seem to be doing great. I don't think that you should wait until it is dormant, now would be the time to transplant. Make sure that you water her well.

Thanks melaroma. I was concerned it would be too stressful on them, with the shipping, then potted in a pot and then being put in the ground.
I should be OK though, the area is still not ready and we have had alot of rain so it looks like it is being pushed back another week. This will give them a few more days in the pot to become stronger. Hopefully next week, I will be able to put in ground.

Thanks again!
