Also to know is, when can you plant a potted hydrangea outside?
It is always best to plant the potted hydrangea outdoors whenever possible. It should only be planted outdoors in early to mid summer as it needs time to acclimate to outdoor conditions before winter arrives.
Additionally, are florist hydrangeas Hardy? Most hydrangeas that are sold as gift plants are hardy on Cape Cod. So like all of our pink and blue hydrangeas, these will have reduced flowering the summer after a cold winter. Potted Hydrangea plants dry out quickly. This is the most challenging thing about keeping them indoors in April and May.
Likewise, people ask, is there a difference between indoor and outdoor hydrangeas?
When a hydrangea doesn't bloom in the spring, frost is often the culprit. So if it's still chilly where you live, wait a little longer before moving your potted plant into the great outdoors. But that's no problem. Hydrangeas are just as pleasant indoors as they are outside.
How do you care for a potted hydrangea outside?
- Place your potted hydrangeas in areas that receive morning sunlight and afternoon shade, for best growth.
- Add organic matter, such as peat moss, to soil to improve fertility, as potted hydrangeas perform best in potting mix high in organic content.
