Sowing, Seeds, Planting Plant in a cool, semi-shady part of the garden. Avoid exposed east-facing sites, where cold winds may damage young spring growth. Dry sunny spots are also best avoided. Work plenty of organic matter into the soil prior to planting and sprinkle mycorrhizal fungi into the base of the planting hole, firm in and water well until established.
Care Tips To enhance flowering prune hard in early spring, cut back the previous season's shoots to within a few buds of the permanent, woody framework of the plant.

Beautiful plant - ordered this last September and have planted it in a large container - has been stunning all summer - started a dark cream and is now starting to turn pink (we're now in August). It smells heavenly! and now can't wait to watch it turn dark crimson.

The wins Red hydrangea died due to the heat this summer . It was in a stone pot with all the right compost/ nutrients but I went ou one day and it completely dropped and despite giving it loads of water on my return I couldn’t revive it. 😥
