The blue hydrangea brings colour to the garden
The hydrangea is also called the farmer's hydrangea. This is for good reason. Blue hydrangeas are often found in cottage gardens. But the hydrangea is also at home in English gardens, a plant that produces countless flowers every year. It is ideal as a solitary plant or as a hedge shrub. Hydrangea Macrophylla, as the hydrangea is botanically called, delights every gardener with its beauty even when in bud. If it is placed in a suitable location, in the sun or in partial shade, there is nothing to prevent it from flowering every year. With its many flowers, the blue hydrangea looks great in front of larger, non-flowering hedging plants. But the hydrangea is also well suited as part of a flowering hedge. It protects the garden or patio from unwelcome glances from outside and at the same time pleases the observer.
The blue cottage hydrangea can be combined well
A hedge consisting only of blue hydrangeas is just as conceivable as a combination with other hydrangeas with white, red or pink flowers. It is best to plant two to three hydrangeas per metre of hedge. The blue beauty can also be combined with other shrubs such as the Photinia or the familiar lilac with white, pink or purple flowers to create a special kind of flowering hedge.
Even in a pot, the Hydrangea Macrophylla is an eye-catcher
The Hydrangea not only fits well in a country garden. Anyone who likes it flowery and romantic cannot do without the blue garden hydrangea. However, it does not only cut a fine figure in the garden itself. On the patio in a suitable pot, the blue garden hydrangea fits very well and delights with its many flowers.
No great care requirements
Hortensias do not require much care from the garden owner. In winter, 10 to 20 centimetres of mulch, compost or peat as a cover on the ground and a linen bag to wrap around the plants are sufficient and the plants will survive the cold season without any problems. Autumn leaves are also very suitable for covering. When planted in a pot, the plant container is wrapped with bubble wrap and a coconut mat. Keep the plant moist during the rest of the year. If the hydrangea receives regular fertiliser, it will thank you with another abundance of flowers. However, this is only necessary until the end of July, after which fertilising can be stopped until next spring.
