12 Care Tips For Pretty Hydrangeas

Tricks to help them grow outdoors or just look fresh in a vase.


The best time to plant hydrangeas is in the late spring or early fall when the weather is mild. Plant them at least six weeks ahead of the first expected cold snap in the fall or once the threat of cold weather has passed completely in late spring.

The best place to plant hydrangeas is in an area that is partially sheltered with sun in the mornings and shade in the afternoon, usually near the side of your home or near a fence, not too close to other shrubs or trees.Jon Lovette/Photographer's Choice RF/Getty Images
