How to Care for Hydrangeas This Spring in Keswick

Hydrangeas are wonderful to have around, so make sure to follow proper care requirements if you want those fancy, continuous blooms we keep talking about. The word hydrangea actually stems from the Greek words "hydro" and "angeoin," meaning "water vessel." All varieties of hydrangeas are going to need lots of water, so aim to water new hydrangeas deeply about three times a week to promote root growth. Water at the base and soak the ground completely for best results. You can also add mulch to help keep that moisture locked in, especially during hot weather.

Hydrangeas also love soil rich in organic content, so ensure a good quality blend. Some varieties of hydrangeas will change the colour of their flowers depending on the soil's pH levels. If you want pink hydrangeas to turn blue, adjust the pH levels to around 5.2-5.5. For purple hues, aim higher at the 5.5-6.5 range and even higher to change your blooms to pink. 

We hope you’re ready to add some hot new hydrangeas to your spring garden in Keswick, Ontario. Whether you’re already hydrangea-crazy or new to the club, we’ve got plenty to choose from—come by this week for some fresh new picks and elevate your garden to the next level!
