Pruning: If the hydrangea is growing in a warm climate you should prune the plant immediately after the flowering period. If the climate is somewhat cooler, the plant is best pruned in the spring, cut back to approximately 2 to 3 cms above a strong pair of buds
The Magical hydrangea does 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 when possible to keep the flowers dry. And make sure that the soil drains well.
When should I prune back my Hydrangea:
We suggest waiting until Febrary/March when the frosts have gone. The dead flower heads will protect the plant over the winter months. When the frosts have finished cut it back by approximately a quarter and remove any weak or frost damaged shoots to the healthy wood.
