Pruning: Cut your Hydrangea back to a strong pair of buds in early spring after the frosts have cleared, can be cut earlier if you have planted in a pot and can bring it inside to escape the worse of the winter weather.
Hydrangea plants do not like having dry roots. The plant needs watering regularly, both in a pot and in the soil during warm periods. You should thereby try as much as possible to keep the flowers dry. If pot planted we would recommend you stand your pot on water dish and water from the base. Do not allow to dry out.
