Full Sun/Part Shade. While either is okay, they tend to flower for longer when they are in dappled light or when protected from the afternoon sun.
Hydrangeas like moist free draining soil with plenty of organic matter. Fertilise with sheep pellets in spring & summer. Use a liquid feed like Kings Ocean Grow in Spring to promote strong growth.
Hydrangeas are unusual in that the flowers of some varieties will vary in colour depending on the soil conditions. Add Kings Hydrangea Blue Enhancer or add lime for pinker blooms. For quicker acting solutions, use the NEW Yates Liquid Hydrangea Blueing or Pinking.
