I need advice on when and how far down to cut my hydrangea.
It has been on the property for over 60 years and always does fine.
It has white blooms that peak in mid to late summer. People in my
neighborhood call it a snowball bush. Is this the common name?
I have always cut it right to the ground, some years in late fall, some
years in spring
. It does not seem to change how it does.
It grows to about 4 and a half feet tall by season end.
Some years it gets more blooms than others. Can anyone tell me
if I cut it back to about 18 inches will it end up taller than in the past?
Also by not cutting it back as far, will it get more blooms?
Finally, when is best fall or spring
Your advice will be appreciated
